    Haven't seen double digit temps in over a week besides negative double digits.

    Me neither, but I switched my weather app to celsius a while ago.

    Side note, this is my 1000th post in the BK&T subforum. What is wrong with me?

    Yep, and these last ones have been building up very slowly. Used to be a fast paced place here. I think Ethan needs to tease us with a new, upcoming blade. ;)

    Was thinking of purchasing a propane heater for the cabin. Be nice to have something to turn on, as soon as you walk into a cold cabin. Was looking into a "ventless", but that's deceiving. Price is good, is about all. I would like to purchase a direct vent lp, but damn, they're pricey. Keep looking on Craigslist, I guess.

    My grandpa recently mentioned getting a couple dyna-glo heaters for the house and garage. I have never heard of them, but he seems to think they are pretty good.

    Picked up a single head Mr Heater for my nephews ice fishing shack. It has 3 different BTU outputs. But I forgot what they are. He loves it out in the garage and the ice shack.

    Was checking out both of these brands. These are what I was interested in, as the price was right, until I found out they kill the oxygen in the air. From what I've been reading, they are dangerous. The "cheaper" ones I'm interested now, the direct vent models, start in the $500-600 range, up to a few thousand. I'll just stick with the wood heat. The wood heat works great, but I was looking for something to heat it until the wood got going good, or, of course, if I ran out of wood, a back up heat source.

    @Bladite, this has me enormously intrigued! The few times I have had the occasion to sip Bruichladdich have been memorably pleasant, but none of them were of this particular type and vintage. I have never heard of an "unpeated" Islay, dare I say, Sacrilege?!

    In all seriousness, I'd love to hear your tasting notes on this. I might have to educate myself on the nature of unpeated Islays.... Seems like an oxymoron.

    Ugh, no kidding. I've literally inherited my former partner's bottle of Bruichladdich (different variety). :(

    for short term and/or supplemental heat, they're fine -- especially since I suspect your cabin isn't totally air-tight.
    the mr heater blue flame units even have a "low o2" shut-off switch.
    turn it on, get the cabin heating up while you haul stuff in and fire up the wood stove, then turn it back off.
