It snowed yesterday and last night.  I think we got about 3 inches.

Here's a photo of my security camera screen - both front and back.

This morning, the temperature on the main floor of the passive solar house was was 68 degrees, and the overnight outside temperature had fallen to 17 degrees on the patio (where the temperature gauge is). So, since the forecast was light snow all day, we went ahead and brought in some firewood, from the wood we had saved from tree-pruning and mitigation around town.  

It didn't take long for the old Heat King wood stove to bring the temperature up to 75 degrees on the main floor, and 82 degrees in the family room, where the wood stove is located.  Since it was going to snow lightly all day, we covered the wood pile up with a spare tarp.


It was only 33 degrees outside today, but sunny, so the trombe walls are warm - so warm inside that we don't need to have a fire in the wood stove. I might build a small fire late tonight, but nothing big or sustained.Here's temp in the house at 10:25 P.M..

There's a good chance the inside of the house temp will be about 60 degrees.  We'll see.
