We have had our first negative temp for this year. This morning it was -4 when we got up. I am not complaining. I love Maine. I love the snow. Each season is unique. You definitely know when winter is here. Well folks, winter is HERE! No doubt about it. We have completely given up our fuel oil habit. We are still tied to propane for the logs in the living room. We use that fireplace to heat the main house. This little wood stove in the kitchen does a great job of keeping us warm and cozy in the back. All that cutting and splitting from last summer is now being put to excellent use. After a morning out putting in hay and watering the animals we are back inside stoking up the fire and having a warm cup of coffee.
After the wood burns down to coals we put in this creosote removing log in to burn. I don't know if this really works or not. It is suppose to prevent chimney fires from creosote build up. Anyone use them? What do you think?
