Looks positively cozy, sort of home like.

Yep.  A nice nip to the air, maybe some frost on the ground at sunrise.

Just need the coffee pot on top of that stove and pull some coals down onto that hearth for your dutch oven.

I miss Fall…but not this Fall ;)

 

Here in the southern and coastal part of The People’s Utopia of Enlightenment we don’t so much as have seasons as we have some temperature variations with a different length of daylight. But, I must say “climate change” or as I like to call it “Terra Forming for our Alien Overlords” (this gets me some weird looks) has made winter months here a little more like the Pacific Northwest on occasion. 
 

I am truly looking forward to Fall in Pennsylvania.

You're braver then I am- unless it's empty and just an ornament.

 

That powder flask is way closer to an open flame that my preference.  I was at EOT '02 when the guy- he was with Lindholm Brothers Spurs, if I remember right- blew one of them up and almost lost a thumb because he was smoking while refilling it.  It taught me a whole new level of respect (and caution) for black powder.

Here in Sacramento, the Hinges of Hell™ are warming up, but not glowing red quite yet.
We have barely topped 100F / 38C a day or two so far...
But... Hell's a-comin'

We have had a truly delightful spring.
Sadly, there only remains about 3 more weeks before Winter is coming after the Summer solstice.
We enjoy both Spring and Fall here.. for me, more Spring due to the lengthening days.
Fall has less allergies, but not by much.

Been a long time since I have had FFFG in that flask, but it has been to a LOT of BP matches and loaded a LOT of rounds. The circular spring eventually broke.

Buckshot Bear: What kind of temperatures do you get in the winter?

 

Nothing like what you would get I think. Lowest I can remember was around 2°C some mornings with a top of around 11°C, most Winter days average around 8°C to a top of around 15°C.

 

I have a mate in Minnesota he's done videos for me of throwing boiling water in the air and it comes down frozen :)

This fan we bought last Winter off eBay is interesting. It just runs off the heat of the stove (don't know how, but it works) and pushes warm air through the house.

Yep, I saw that, too.  But did you notice the thing next to it?  Is that a Hand Grenade?  :o

 

Two hand grenades next to a fire.  Interesting decorating choice.  :D

 

(Don't even get me started on smoking while pouring Black Powder.  Yowza!)
