Presently 40 degrees here, and going down to anywhere between 32 to 36 degrees tonight in the surrounding area. The frost warning is in effect from 2 AM to 10 AM. I think I'll just burn some wood to fend it off until the real stuff comes along and switches us over to coal (which for me means simply turning on the coal boilers T-Stats).

Was going to fire up the stove. Needed new firebricks. Got one less than was needed. Lucky the store is right down the street. Back tomorrow I guess, unless the temp spikes.

Turned on the electric baseboard heat tonight. Looks like 70's all week so I'm still holding off on firing up the coal stove.
