    A lot of wood stove add-on's now still require the blower...unless it's a radiant heat style wood stove, but not too many people with those in the corner anymore.

    Send the wife and boys this way. Our home's not too large, but we'd make room for them. You can stay in the "igloo" and guard the Pings!!!

    At my age, I'll take extreme heat over extreme cold. Heat makes me uncomfortable, sweaty, etc........minor issues. Cold makes my body HURT - major issue. I'd love to retire and spend the winters in Florida..................oh, wait............

    Rub your hands together rally fast to build heat, but watch what you catch between them.

    With oil we never went over 64. Wood pellets are much cheaper. 79 is high but it was -21 so I cranked it up. Typically we are in the 70-72 range.

    That actually sounds good, except the cigar part. :)

    We were actually close to moving to Wilmington, NC a few years back. May be time to revisit that notion.

    FL, SC, NC = hurricanes, right? Even if it's only once every few years (even though there is an actual hurricane "season" every year) the mere possibility is reason enough to make me not want to live there. But, to each his own...

    Hell yeah. Born & raised in WI... i'm almost 37 now and i'm over it. Very very over it. If, no wait... when I move to a warmer climate I will miss Lake Michigan though. There are a few days here in summer that are pure heaven living right on the inland ocean. Being a carpenter who has to work in the elements though I say this, phuck the cold!

    I like a change of season, but January through March stink. I call it the Gray Time.

    The irony is that in my neck of the woods, that period is the most disgusting from a heat perspective. I usually can't wait for it to hit April when the humidity reduces and the days become milder.
