Why I Moved to the Country: Reason #18

It's almost mid-November, we're averaging night time temperatures below 0C (32F) and we have yet to turn on our furnace, thanks to our two wood stoves. Of course, it helps that the old farmhouse, with it's super thick walls, can really retain heat.


Thank you everyone for your condolences for my son as we come to terms with our loss. I feel truly blessed to be part of such a loving and giving community.

Thank goodness for woodstoves. When really cold weather hits, we have an outside wood furnace. but there's nothing like the warmth of an inside woodstove!

Prayers still going up for your son during this time. -Tammy

Your yard full of wood looks like ours! We have 2 beautiful propane fireplaces. We have not used either in two years. Just the wood to heat's worth it. This way the horses, dogs, cats, and us get to stay warm and EAT! No electric bill hardly. We also use oil lamps! I love them!!
