    It's official summer is gone had to fire up the wood stove this am. My plan was not to do so until Nov 1 but youngest daughter was cold so she went and got wood. Just to take the chill off.

    Yep! You're right on that one! We are a little further south of you but I'm thinking within the week we will be stuffing wood into our stove too!
    I've had 7 dreams in the past 4 mos. about it starting to snow! [​IMG]

    I still need to get our woodstove INSTALLED. It's 40 here this morning... I'm freezing my rear end off. The kids are all bundled up real good. I hope it warms up today.

    It is 38 degrees here right now and a couple windows are open but the house is still much warmer than outside. I like to wait too, before fireing up the wood furnace. Soon we will be starting a fire in the a.m. to ward off the chill. Afternoons are much warmer but as soon as that sun goes down..brrrr Almost time for me to hibernate [​IMG]

    We couldn't make it through the winter finacially if we didn't have our woodstoves. The cost for propane is outrageous.We have a 1800 sq ft 1862 farmhouse and it is a blessing and a chore to heat.

    Yep we fired ours up 2 nights ago my kids are small still so it begins, hauling, cutting and keeping it going all the time. I am soo not ready for it to be cold yet! I won't get to watch chicken T.V. as much which is mine and my daughters' favorite thing to do in the morning and then later in the afternoon and I lost my helper she is only 3.

    Here in the middle of west texas, it's chilly enough this morning (45*) , if we had a wood stove, he'd be parked right in front of it.[​IMG] At least I wouldn't have to worry about the coals going out, I've got the best stove loader, a very cold man!

    Yep back to the up at 3 am putting wood on the fire,then not being able to go back to sleep.
    But its worth it we save alot of money by not buying propane.Plus i can cook on my wood burner so more savings there.
