I am up here in the North Carolina mountains. We have had some chilly weather, it was 30 degrees this morning. The Oslo is cranking now.
But, it will be cold on Tuesday, a low of 12 degrees and a high of 36, snow in the morning.
I'm sure the Oslo is up to the task.

I'm right there with you! At 4,000 ft. and we could have snow on Tuesday. A early winter blast in the western NC mountains!

Same here for us Tuesday. Low if 11 and high of 24. I’ve had the insert going already, but just shoulder wood and the blower as low as it will go. Windows have been opened a few times as well because the family got too hot.

The guys out in the warehouse have the radio on - hear this once in a while:
Winter is here, again, Oh Lord Haven't been home in a year or more I hope she holds on a little longer Sent a letter on a long summer day
Journey - Wheel In The Sky 1980
It's in my head now.

Just got back from deer hunting in northern MN. 0* for a low today. 16* at home in central MN. Cold coming early this year. All the wet ground is frozen. Makes for easy walking though. Good to be home next to the stove!

It seems like most of the country is in for some cold temps. I have a garage full of dry wood and a couple of stoves ready to put out some heat.

I am at 2,000 feet. You are really going to get it.

Hopefully, the eastern side of the mountains won't be as bad for snow accumulations as the western side.

We only ended up with about four or five inches here but with yesterdays rain and the snow being heavy some trees are hanging pretty low.

We got two inches of snow. The temp only got to 18, they had predicted 10 degrees. Still, windy and very cold.
The Oslo was up to the job no problem.

We had record lows here last night and probably again tonight. (Now I'm going to make y'all snicker, because it only got down to about 20... that's about as cold as it usually gets in the heart of winter, though.)

Definitely january type temps for most of us. not normal for early november but it all depends on which direction the wind is blowing.

You are a Yankee, yet you used the word "y'all" and you spelled it correctly. You are bilingual.

Meh, I was born south of the Mason Dixon line, and I lived several years in Georgia. I live in NY now, but I still say "y'all" and"redlight", still fix to do things, and still drink Cokes that say Pepsi on the bottle. :)

So I guess I'm a Yankee, but probably safe from Damnyankee status!

Long Island! Boy, you are a long way from home.

I am from Georgia but I love to visit New York City. Very, very different from Atlanta, I think you need a passport to visit New York if you are from Georgia.

Don't be seen with a bottle of Pepsi if you go back to Atlanta, you'll be swinging from the nearest tree in short order. :oops:
But don't worry, we'll cut you down and give you a proper burial in one of our ash pits. Of course, we'll drop the tree to get you down..might as well get some more firewood while we're at it. ;lol
