This looks like really soft wood. It'll burn quickly and not provide alot of heat. Nothing at all like the heat obtained from the hardwoods of Arkansas that you are probably accustomed to. The hottest wood I've burned in this area is Peach. Not quite like hickory or oak, but pretty darn hot and long burning too.

It's pine from Wyoming of all places. Burns hot and lasts quite a while. In Arkansas all I ever burned was red oak, of course they don't have that here. I've burned Aspen and Cottonwood but this stuff does better and the price was right. And yes, the chimney was cleaned and will be cleaned again.

I just updated the "propane vs natural gas" thread, and it has some surprisingly good numbers for wood as a heat source.

Well 3" of snow here, it's in the single digits this morning. A friend who lives here and works in Telluride said it was a nice sunny day there, streets were dry, hardly any snow. Said it was a lot worse here in Delta. My niece wanted to make a snowman so outside we went, it was funny watching her trying to pack this powder, it's like trying to make a snowman out of air. Anyway, we ran around, threw snow at each other, it was lots of fun.

So, I have plenty of firewood, plenty of goodies to eat, and going to enjoy the white Christmas. Making biscuits and gravy this morning.

I hope yall have a great weekend, a great Christmas and get everything you ask for.
