I dread the weather coming up
« on: October 12, 2019, 09:31:40 am »
I'm afraid I'm going to need to start a fire. It's chilly in here. It's only 58 here at 12:30 p.m. It's very cool in the house. I hate this time of year because it will be too hot if I do start one but too cold if I don't. I go through more wood at this time of year because if I let it go out, I'd just need to start it the following day.

I grew up with a wood burner.  I don't miss the work.  I sure miss every thing else about them.  The fire going out in the wee hours of the morning waking up to see your breath.  LOL.  boy we got dressed in a hurry.

I also dread this weather coming up turned on our pellet stove this morning to take the chill  off seems the winter months last so long and cost so much money to stay warm

I rather enjoy this kind of weather hopefully it will kill all the bad germs hanging around I use my electric fireplace to warm up   No wood burners for me    Had coal furnace growing up and that was enough to last my lifetime

I'm guessing you live in the north (east or west) or the Midwest. I used to live outside of Chicago, and the winter months could be pretty oppressive because of the numbing cold and the deep, deep snow. But I've lived in Georgia for about 30 years, and now I wish there was even one day in the winter when it would be cold enough to start up the fireplace, LOL!  :peace:

I love this time of year, actually I will love it closer to the end of the month. It is still close to 90 here, but the humidity is going down a little. It is better than a month ago though.

    I know what you mean...I have been there!
    A wood fireplace is not going to do the work.
    Buy space heaters...the ones with dual controls.
    Fan, fan with low/high heat. They will do the work.
    In a warm day open your windows to let the cold air out!

I live here in the Georgia Mountains and the Weather is not bad yet. It is quite chilly in the Mornings here in the Mountains. I do have to start a fire in the Mornings, but come afternoon I'm ready for some A/C.

I live in central florida and so I don't have to deal with that problem usually although we do have some cold weather some years but not this early.  But I can relate because back some years we lived in NC for two years and I couldn't wait to get out from the snow and cold. Sorry you are cold.

I feel your pain.  I love the fall weather, but it becomes frigid too quick with winter.

Iím sorry, but you canít always have good weather. Itís your responsibility to do whatever makes you the most comfortable no matter what! I guess you donít have a thermostat that works, so it might be harder for you to ease stress.
