A Chilly December Morning in the Cabin

So I had a large fire on the last afternoon in November and we opted for no evening fire, although it steadily ran through from 24, 23, 22, 21 and then I went to bed. I woke up on the first of December to this:


We haven’t seen that temperature inside since. Not sure if we’ll let it get down that far again – the cabin gets better sealed each year, and we’ve actually been putting the stove into airtight mode often without having the blowback of smoke that has occurred in the past, so we may be more open to stoking a fire and then turning it down in the evenings than we have in the past.

  1. Oh my goodness! I know of someone that stokes their fire every night, then turns it down once it is burning well and heads to bed… it is still warm in the morning and one piece of wood and it starts up again….embers every morning and keeps everyone toasty. With winter about to kick in….great idea I think.
    Stay warm and enjoy the fire, it is not only warm but beautiful.
    Talk soon.
