I don't use the 2 chimneys as Mom had them capped. I had thought about getting a pelet stove back in 2007 until I read that they don't work when the electricity is out. This was before I replaced the 2 heat pumps.
We had a really cold winter in 2010 and my house was not that warm. I decided that I would invest in more Cuddle Duds to wear under my slacks and that I'd wear layers. I will be on the look out for a couple of more sets of flannel sheets.
I've got over 40 trees in my yard. I would be perfectly willing for people to take the smaller tree limbs/branches that fall. We lost 2 huge Pecan trees in 2003 during Hurricane Isabel. Mom tried to give them away as they would've provided enough wood for almost 2 years. No one took Mom up on her offer. Go figure. If that were to happen again, my organized friend's dh would come over and cut them so that they could use them.
Actually, if I lose anymore trees, I will notify the church that my friends attend and they will come and cut up the wood for people in need that attend that church.
So...I will be heating my house again with the 2 heat pumps and I'll be wearing layers in really cold weather.
