One Month Left?

With the heaps (and more heaps) of snow here, and ski season in more-than-full swing, it’s funny to think that we’re only a month away from the day when we shut down the heat altogether last year.  And a short month, at that.  No specific date in mind for firing-down this year, but it will probably be about the same.  Already the sun feels higher and stronger, and the urgency for a fire seems less and less.

In the meantime, I’m building an igloo in the yard.  In case it gets too warm in the house.

    Today gave a glimpse of spring. I don’t know if we’ll get to enjoy an early shut down like last year, but the solar gain was very noticable today and much appreciated.

    I found this the the Boston Globe, about a couple who have decided that their house is just too warm. http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.boston.com%2Fyourtown%2Fnews%2Fmelrose%2F2011%2F02%2F586_days_later_couple_still_co.html&h=fea67

    “till waiting for some pictures of the igloo build”
    Yeah… unfortunately I got the igloo to an unstable half-built stage, then went off on a little ski junket, then when I came back there were a couple warm days and the walls sort of fell in. If it gets cold again I might start over.

    So, we’re almost there… Do you think you’re going to make it (the furnace shut-off) by very early March?

    1) Just for clarification, there is no “furnace”– just the lil’ wood stove.
    2) For an answer to your question, you’ll have to ask J.

    Oops, my error — yes, I realize you just have a wood stove, no furnace. Ad for asking J, well, I think I’ll pass — we women have to stick together!
