Started mine after our first frost a week ago, usually start by the first of October but not this year.

We've had 3 or 4 fires in the woodstove so far.  Haven't even  looked at the OWB up at the farm yet.  Then again we've had a real funny fall here in NH so far - almost 70 and raining today!

Started mine back at the end of Sept after we had a few frosts in a row and days in the 40s. Then last week it hit 80 so I just let it idle along for a few days, now it snowed last night so I was glad it was ready to go.

Today was the day, had some air pockets in the lines and water wasn't circulating at the beginning, seems to be working now. Ready to burn. :)
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!
