Yes, I think it’s safe to say we’re done with heat. We’ve had two fires in the past two weeks– the last one was on April 2nd (when there were guests here). None since. Not that it’s been super-warm in here– the past week we averaged under 52º. But with outside temps finally starting to approximate seasonal norms, things have been better, and I think the mercury is all upwards from here. The graph for the past two weeks, including the average daily outdoors temp:
I went out and inspected the pile of wood from the tree we felled this time last year. It looks lovely– nice silvery patina, light in the hand, full of cracks and check marks. It’ll be ready for next winter.
Stay tuned for a season wrap-up.
