There's smoke coming out of the chimney so the place must be warm. So far this winter we've been nice and warm, usually in the 70s inside occasionally 80 or higher. The stove is working very well and fairly easy on wood. So far we've burnt about 3 tier of wood. This winter will determine how much firewood I'll have to cut for next winter.Like I said in the previous post, the snowbanks are a lot higher now than in the picture with the Jeep.
Here I am playing in the snow. These pictures were taken on the 14th of Jan. The Old Lady was trying to get a picture of the frost in my beard.
There are many jokes about the seasons UP on the Tundra. The one I like is this: What do they do UP on the Tundra when it's Summer. Ans. If it falls on a Saturday, they have a picnic!!
Addendum: What I call a tier some call a cord, but it is actually a face cord or 1/3 of a cord. It is a pile 4ft high by 8ft long and 16 inches deep. Put three of those together and you have a full cord which is 4ftX4ftX8ft. Unless you are buying a logtruck load of firewood, when they say so much a cord, it is really a face cord or a tier. So I guess I've burnt a full cord of wood so far.
Maintaining a comfortable temp with a wood-burning stove can be tricky. Either you freeze or roast unless you can control the burn, usually by regulating the air. The more air the hotter it burns if you have good dry wood. Right now it's mid-70s inside and 14 outside, so we are doing OK.
