It was -2 here, were up to zero now, warming to 17.Morning Brett,
It was about 0F when I left this morning. I think even the regular furnaces are having a hard time keeping up. I did pretty good the other night when it was 10 i managed to keep the living room around 70 with red oak and maple, but the rest of the house was slowly getting colder and colder. Not to bad for sleeping I don't need the bedrooms to be a raging furnace anyways. looks like its supposed to warm up a little next week.
It got down to 70, but it's its back up to 71 now. Burning black locust cookies on top of the coals to get them down and put out some nice heat at the same time, it works very well.
We've never fired the furnace here, bought the place in 2009.
I cut the cookies on the 16th, the pile here is about 8" tall, I have a few inches left. It's a great way to get rid of elm if you have any, makes splitting real easy lol.
