Lillian and I have been battling over this most coveted spot as we have been experiencing one of (if not the) coldest winters I can remember since moving to Arkansas. I’ve never lived in a house with wood heat before (This is supplemental; we also have a furnace), and I LOVE it! We didn’t have much time to stock up on firewood this season with the move, so we only use the woodstove on the coldest nights (and when the furnace was out!), but I see lots more of this in the forecast for next winter!
The empty lots next to us and the woods behind were a maze of animal tracks to explore. We have deer in our yard every day, and have seen lots of other wildlife as well, including a coyote the other morning.
