Cold weather is here, looks like time to start a fire


72

Or you can simply "cheat" & quote someone else's post & remove what you don't want

72

Copy & paste works too

That seems like a great way to get symbols, Brokenknee.
I am using Outlook 2007, 2003 also has that option.

Yes, nice little warm front for a while
We didn't make it to 70, maybe close tomorrow
Spent most of the day trimming trees/bushes & clearing out a few overgrown areas

The top of the chimney was rebuilt before we bought the house
Finally remembered to take a picture of the fireplace/chimney (see attached). Looks straight, but I think it should be cleaned before using. Sucks - I don't want to take time off work to wait for a chimney sweep to come in and do it. Do they make a DIY tool (that isn't expensive and I can use without going on the roof) to clean it yourself?

Yup a chimey brush with a weight on the end is what I use
That doesn't look that bad
I'll be cleaning mine in the Spring, I checked & it's OK for now
I'm burning thru all the old wood, heat not on yet
We have an Oak tree that has to come down & I'll probably get 2+ cords out of it
Some branches already cut off by POCO
Trips down to Grandmother & Great Grandmother will be in the truck from now on
11 acres off wooded land - so I'll be coming back with a truckload of wood each time

I finally verified how much wood I stack along the fence
Each 6' high section x 8' long hold about 1/2 cord of wood
So all 4 sections should hold 2 cords
I burn at least a cord every year - usually over, probably closer to 1.5 cords

Have yet to turn the heat on, it's been warmer
So far this is almost a month later then last year

She sits on the couch, which does not fit near the fireplace
My chair is by the fire...just the way the stuff fits in the room
She wants to sit on the couch....
It can be 74 in here & she still might think its cold
