Good morning Mallet.

Did you see the sun? Well now go inside and stay there, because what you've seen will be worst.

I have few things to arrange with that son of a gun raccoon, weather forecaster wannabe and I have a gun here... and I'm warning you, rodent from hell, I know how to use it.

Talk to you later, but if you hear few bing...bang...boom... start to sing hell...eluiah... hell...eluiah... hell...eluiah

May as well laugh about the cold weather

"There were these three Eskimos in Alaska, and one time while they were
at their local bar, they got to talking about how cold it was outside, and
how cold their igloos were. They could agree on everything but whose igloo
was the coldest, so they decided to determine who, indeed, had the coldest
They went to the first Eskimo's igloo, where he said "Watch this!" and
poured a cup of water into the air. Well, the water froze in mid-air and
fell onto the floor.
"Not bad" said the other Eskimos, but each maintained their igloo was
colder still.
So they went to the second Eskimo's igloo, and he said "Watch this!"
and took a big breath and exhaled, whereupon his breath froze into a
big lump and fell to the floor.
"Wow, that's colder than mine! "said the first Eskimo. But the third
Eskimo exclaimed his was colder still. So they ended up at the third
Eskimo's igloo. He said "Watch this!" and went into the bedroom, threw
back the thick furs, and retrieved one of several small balls of ice
there. He took it, put it in a spoon, and held a match under it. When
it heated up enough, it went "FFFAAAARRRRTTT".
He won.

What kind of hardwood you using, I remember my older sister just fueling the fire once through the night.
Did you have the damper wide open, I was just a kid when we heated our house with a wood burning kitchen stove and a pot belly stove.
I don`t recall hardwood burning that fast, like I said, I was just a kid.

Was pretty warm indoors but was Minus 34 thursday and minus 30 today friday, outside the back door. Makes it hard to breath through the mouth and through the nose the hairs freeze. I use maple and birch, but getting hard to find loads of firewood these days. I had a few loads off Keith but it was generally a bit dirty, and can,t find the guy I had a load off last year. Do you know a regular guy for firewood??

Bounder & Mallet

What do you think about the Pellet Stove?
A friend bought a few years ago, said he liked it better than the wood stove.
I don`t visit long at his house, it`s always too warm.
Bobby Nerves 2/28/2014 7:19:28 PM Report

Hey Mallet, I have plenty of natural gas here, and many spare LP tanks. I can deliver it to you. For a fee or course.

Grump 2/28/2014 7:56:47 PM Report

Celeste I put in a pellet stove last fall in my rec. room. If it isn't really cold out I keep it on the lowest of 6 settings and burn about 3/4 of a bag a day. If it gets cooler or is in the morning I put it on the second setting for a few hours but if left too long it gets too warm. I bought two skids in the fall (150 bags) and will likely have 25 or 30 left in the spring. If I didn't have so much scrap to get rid of in the shop I would put one in there also. It's cheaper than firewood and I clean the ash out maybe every two or three weeks. The shop every day or two. It certainly cut my heating bill.

Dear Mallet:

In case you see a white thing falling constantly from the sky, that's call snow. Perhaps you forgot about because we've been two days without it. RMAOFL
