@rob42049 you do not have creosote issues burning that pine? Most of the pine cut around this area can be found in the dump. You would be in wood heaven if you stopped by the local landfill after a big storm.
I've been burning Ponderosa Pine for almost 50 years. It's the prevalent fuel here. Forest Service estimates for residents burning Pine run into the hundreds of thousands of cords per year. 100% renewable and no damage to the forest at all. No standing trees allowed to be cut on National Forest land and no clearcutting, even on private land. A lot of the Pine burned is blowdowns, pickups, and designated thinning. There's not a whole lot of deciduous forest here. Every year, sometimes more, I inspect the chimney, and clean it if needed. Cottonwood, Poplar, and Aspen especially actually clean the pine tar in the chimney.

It's 88 above at 6 PM, 13% humidity. Hot and dry. Shot my Remlin today, found out by accident it holds 11 .44 Mag cartridges in the magazine. Shoots like a laser beam. A great day off. You just can't say enough good things about a .44 Mag levergun. A serendipitous mating of power, accuracy, and platform.

37 on the coast. It is wicked dark out. Today's high is supposed to be 63 with haze due to the wild fire smoke.

Seas are 5 to 8 feet due to Paulette.

@cajun56 are you in the path for this latest storm?

My place is all hardwoods with a very few pines. I have burned a bit of the stuff. First it should be dry, then it does not creosote so bad. Like Rob says it not bad mixed with hardwoods. You need to let a wood fire really rip regularly to keep down the creosote. Burning wood to throttled down causes a lot of the problem. Best to let the stove roar a bit in the morning.

60* out and windy.

DEP

It's 61 and clear in the beautiful Black Hills. We're topping out in the high 80's again, humidity 32%. This is a good time of year on the Northern Plains. The sky is hazy from the ANTIFA fires. I wonder how much it costs to buy Mayors, Prosecutors, Police Admins, Governors, and Federal LE etc etc, to sell out the World's leading industrial power. Somebody has billions, trillions of dollars invested in this takeover attempt. There's lawlessness on an unprecedented scale. What's the endgame? My mind is boggled. Good day to eat 99 cent tacos with super hot homegrown peppers.

Have a nice Taco Tuesday.
