I'm glad I lit the match yesterday. Ice on the patio table but a nice 75 inside.

well the decision was made......added another bag to the almost gone coal bed as the hi 40's low 50's is just not comfy....

I would be nice to get some warmer weather soon.....

that first match was a doozy 8-)

I can't believe anyone is still burning. I shut down what seems like months ago. Sure it gets a little cool in the house overnight but with the windows open what would you expect. :D

:D the swings up here on the plateau dont have safety straps 8-)

there is sometimes a 12* difference from up here in the Pines to down at the Gap, in the 'Burgs.....

We had snow the other day, folks down there looked at me like I was crazy when i told em :shock:

Kinda like that look that the Stove Fairy gets when he trodds the beaten path to Chester NY.... :roll:

this area is where they used to farm ice, to supply the folks in News Yorks City and Filth-a-Deltheia.. so there's remenants of cold damp air, everywhere :roll:

Thought I would be done by now, however, I am still burning. Snow and mid 30 F temps dictates my keeping the coal stove burning. I actually enjoy this.

Thought I was done. Had to get dressed and go out and buy some burn bags to lite off the Econo 1 this morning. Wife of 42 years was cold and if I want to make another year I had to get that stove lit!!!

Weather report said FREEZE WARNING for tonight. What is going on ? Memorial day Sunday and they predict a freeze warning? Where is Al Gore when you need him?
