This morning it was 17.7 in the cabin, and I can see that at this moment it is 0.0 outside.
In an effort to promote and maintain familial happiness, I finally put a match to paper and wood and lit the first fire of our season. It has currently warmed the cabin to over 18, but it's not roaring for some reason. I put in some large chunks of well seasoned birch, so at least it should go for awhile.
|Not bad for a 5am picture! Note the electric heater which supplements in late afternoon when the sun is still strong and the batteries are almost floating.|
Slightly worryingly is that the wood pile for the '19-'20 season has only just begun - hopefully in the remainder of the month and up to Christmas, I can take advantage of the Brrr Months to get some wood put up for next year.
At least I can warm up large quantities of water now without using butane or watching the power levels 😀!
