    I had a morning stove fire today, and opened and few windows. And now it's pushing 70 outside.

    If I need to bring up some wood for and other morning fire, then so be it.

    Generally I look at June 10 as the end of the heating season. Sometimes it happens earlier and sometimes later. This year looks to be earlier. We have 3 days of 80's forecast for this Holiday weekend. I'm betting on lots of really red skin by Tuesday.

    No plans to overhaul the deck. The sun here just beats on it.

    It's going on 30+ years, pressure treated. Still solid, just looks rough. We clear it when it snows, to use the grill and to access the front of the house to get mail. So, the sun is on it all year.

    I was blessed by being up at the top, once. A few years ago, in September. The dice rolled well for us - 40's at the top, breezy, and not a cloud in the sky.

    We bought a ticket and took one of the vans up. I'd have liked to take the Cog up, but there's no bathrooms onboard for the trip.. That wouldn't fly with the Missus.

    We stayed at the Mount Washington Resort. It was for my 60th,birthday. It was another tick on my bucket list.
