Wind

The wind was the worst I have seen- It blew the chimney top off my chimney!

I"m jealous of you guys/gals that say you have stoves (pellet or otherwise). I bought a house last January...and the only source of heat I have besides on older plasma TV is my oil-burner.....and at 2.93$/gallon this past week.....I'm none to thrilled (or overflowing with cash ;-)

The windows in my house are original and I can feel all kinds of draftiness around each of them....I need to get those clear plastic covers that you use a hair-dryer to shrink...ought to help some!

Otherwise...just continuing to dig myself out of the remnants of this weekend's blizzard!

Cheers All!

jdhiv4,

I'm into my stove and DIY chimney liner less than $1300. I bought 1 pallet of pellets so far for $2.87 per bag on sale at Lowe's and used a 10% off coupon for the total purchase of the stove, pellets and a big humidifier. So for around the cost of a tank of oil for me I'm up and running. I haven't used a drop of oil since I started burning pellets. Even though my stove is about the smallest available the hopper holds enough pellets to burn for 8 hours on high and can go better than 12 on the lowest setting.

In my opinion the stove is a better initial investment than windows or other insulation type tasks, a few excess btu's are cheap.

I got my woodstove from a friend remodeling his house for 200 bucks and it was two years old at the time. It's a big sucker that can take lengths of wood up to about 28 inches or so. Out of pocket for wood I paid 500 bucks ttl for 3 1/2 cords. I only buy a couple cords to finish filling my wood shed if I did not cut enough free stuff.

However, there really is no such thing as free firewood. Just ask anyone who has had to cut their own.

We got about 8" here in Newburgh. It was fun playing in the snow. Ebrake turns make it real easy to do a uturn on a narrow street

Dionysus, where in Binghamton are you, the city? I go there for school.

I prefer tight turns/donuts/power slides in an empty lot using the throttle. Rear wheel drive rocks.

I live in the suburbs, with a Binghamton address. You go to Binghamton University or Broome Community?

Dionysus.
