When I got up this morning it was only 1 degree! Unfortunately, our firewood supply inside was almost depleted, so I had to bring in a bunch more this morning. But at least the temperature had gone up 500% by then. Yes, that made it 5 degrees…and it was windy. Still is, actually. So I guess to answer my previous question, it actually really is winter. For a while I was getting worried.
Thankfully it only dropped down to 70 degrees in the house by this morning. That’s the great part about having a wood stove (everything else about it is a pain in the butt). It sure beats paying for electric heat, especially with the massive increases we’ve been having in electric rate these past couple years.
