I was just sitting here with my feet up and can feel the heat from the pellet stove. I'm glad I live in a cold climate (I like winter anyway) so i can fire up the stove, nothing like it. Oh, and for you wood stove lovers. I have always heated with a wood stove for the most part. But now that I have a pellet stove, not sure I would go back to splitting wood.

You forgot the smell.  Nothing smells as nice as a wood fire.

I am. The Hamster who turns my wheel in my cranium has Air Con. For what it is worth, it is 20.36z (local 22.36) time here (Z=GMT) and it has dropped to 38c/104c.

I'm with you. It's hitting highs of 20F here in MI right now, getting down into the single digits plus wind. But nothing beats a wood stove for heat. I can't walk into that room if I have to do something, because I'll just sit down and go to sleep.

The house I grew up in had a cast iron wood stove in the center of the house and when it was going full bore you could sit in the same room like a sauna. My Dad joked that in the winter you could pick your temperature by which room in the house you went to as the farther you got from the stove the cooler it became. It can be a choir to cut and stack the wood. Than you have to maintain the chimney not to mention taking out the ashes but be careful not to dust the whole house with them. But the level of heat and the smell can't be beat by an modern central heating system.

I was in Vegas in July a few years back and it was 45 Celsius the entire week.  It wasn't too, too bad because it's a dry heat there, but you still had to be careful.  I wasn't paying attention and stood on a metal plate by a bus stop and felt the heat through my shoes before stepping off and noticing my soles had started to melt a bit lol.

It sure can.  I'm in SK and, while we don't have much snow this year, it has been much colder than the last several years.  Yesterday was -30 and our power went out for a little over five hours...

My family uses a wood stove for heat. It's nice I get sick of stacking and splitting firewood though.
