My dog sees a lifetime supply of chewables there.
Seriously, it’s started to get below 80 at night here. I’ll be freezing once it gets to 70.
We are in the low 20s F at night now.
It got down to 35 here (just north of Indianapolis) last night. Our gas fireplace got going for the first time this season. I took the hose inside today to keep the outside spigot from freezing up and breaking. I had to scrape frost off the Honda Odyssey's windshield this morning. Yup, winter is on the way.
Time to put the humidifiers in my acoustic guitars.
Yep. I hear ya.
Just put up the first two cords of the season today, and lit the first fire as fate would have it.
I'm gettin' too old for this crap. 8-\
None of the plants I like to live around will survive freezing. I gotta have mangroves and seagrapes and palm trees.
But your mountain’s beautiful in another way, I get it
It keeps you young ... right?
Mrs. Obsessed would be there in a nano second, if she had her druthers.
You can remind her that we have hurricanes, alligators, year-round mosquitoes carrying exotic diseases, Florida Man, waaaay too many people, red tide and other toxic algaes in our waters, lightning that kills; and that’s just the start of the list. Maybe you just need to find her a warmer mountain
Mmmm. Might split some rounds. First year with empty wood stores for a long time.
Got a coal grate in the burner this winter.
It is so damp here the wood never really gets bone dry.
I'm envious. We are maybe into the 40s at night next week.
My house doesn't depend on firewood but the den is built around a stone fireplace with a mechanism that blows heat into the room.
Our ski club has two building that are wood heat only. One more time age is showing via minor wood splitting accident a few weeks ago. What a crazy time in life where you can get injured easier, take longer to heal but are even worse off if you don't keep at the physical activity.
We use liquid wood (propane) to heat with these days. However I grew up with fireplaces and wood stoves. There is no better type of heat than that, IMO. My granny cooked on a wood stove as long as she was physically able. Nothing beats food cooked by wood. Good memories!
Is there a blue ox somewhere on the premises to haul all that tonewood to the chopping block?
Seriously, great job on the heat supply. One thing Mrs. 3T misses from her time in Alaska is a good fireplace. Not much call for fireplace here. At this point, if I had to split that much wood, I believe I would consider one of those mechanical devices.
Hope the winter treats y'all well.
I'm serious, to someone who's never used wood for all of their heating and cooking needs that looks like a lot of wood. I gotta ask though, is that enough wood to take you all the way through the winter? Just before the winter, when I was thirteen we moved onto a cheap little farm of sixty acres over near Waldron Arkansas. We cut wood for the winter, and cut wood for the winter, and cut wood for the winter. Finally my step dad said, I think that will do, it barely did. When I roamed the woods, I always kept my eye out for a pine knot to use as a starter, though it wasn't often the fire was dead. We used kerosene wick lanterns for light, and all of our cooking and heating was by wood.
She's longing for warm gentle breezes on the fairway, she's really a golfer at heart.
I've just got my log burner lit - it's my favourite thing about the cold weather.
BTW, that winter I spent living on the farm, carrying water from a pipe well about a hundred feet every time we needed water, building the fires, putting in fence posts on about forty acres of the land until the ground froze too hard to do it, walking a mile and three quarters to get to the road when it was muddied up to get to our old Studebaker Truck. Well, Mr. Obsessed, that's your name isn't it? I just can't begin to tell you just how much I don't miss that!
A face cord takes us through a winter of atmosphere fires.
Our fireplace is so inefficient that right now when the high is about 55 and the low is about 40 , it’s the perfect time for us to burn with a nice comfortable fire.
But if it’s about 18° we wouldn’t think of a fire because whoever was ever sitting at “that” corner of the room is going to get a gale force of cold prickly’s.
My dad says exactly the same thing. He left the farm, the day he graduated from high school and never looked back. He thinks I'm nuts.
