Chapeau, Ben Franklin

When Mrs. Stallion and I moved to a new residence this summer, I took little note of the wood stove listed as “supplemental heating”.

As I type this, it is a seasonable 30°F outside.  Inside, it is a decidedly unseasonable 81°F.  Supplemental, huh?  I think our “primary” gas furnace has run for a grand total of about 48 hours.

I think we’re going to be spoiled by this thing.

    81! I could deal, but my wife would HATE it.

    I grew up in a house that had a wood stove and loved it. Wish I had one now.

      I just checked the stats – your average high for today is 66; our record high is 62! I don’t think we even considered heating until the high temps got down below 60.

      It’s such a fine line – I will ride outside as low as 48 degrees, but I don’t think we’re seeing decent riding weather (for me) until April.

        Our weather has been way below average the last two weeks. The low tonight is 30 with 23 mph winds. The high tomorrow is 44 with a low of 26. Friday it’s supposed to be 71. Craziness.
