My lube jug contains -20 WW fluid & spindle cleaner, and I purged both pumps and lines with -100 RV antifreeze.  I believe that I will be OK.   ;)
Not being a chemist I have no idea what spindle cleaner does to the temperature rating of WW fluid.
Running RV antifreeze through the pump and lines has been good protection for me up here in the (per WDH) glaciated north.
Keep roasting those termites as you stay warm.

This has been a colder winter for most folks in comparison to the last couple. 

Burned 6 cords last winter and already 6 1/2 this winter and that's seasoned Oak.
Been loading the boiler every 12 hours. 

I honestly don't know how some of ya'll do it up north with some of the temps I see posted. 
Our coldest night here in western VA this winter was 18*.

It has been a mild winter here with Mondays snow being the first one that has stayed any length of time, very little frost in the ground and it all came out last week, this week has been the first week to stay below freezing this winter that I can think of.

I don't really keep track but would guess that I have burnt 1 cord of softwood and 2 of hardwood, mostly soft maple and yellow birch. (indoor wood boiler)

Isn't it funny. Nova Scotia is having a mild winter and right next door in New England (at least where I am in central Massachusetts) we are in a deep freeze. This winter is colder than the last few for sure.

Winter came late here in the U.P. It's making up for it now. -18 last night and around 40" of snow this month. My only heat is a small lopi woodstove and I'm down to burning hemlock slabs. House stays close to 70 even without adding wood during the night. Might go cut and split a couple of dead standing maples  today if it gets at least up to zero.

I'm just a few miles from the coast (I can see the bay of fundy if I stand on my roof) so our weather is often warmed up a bit by the time it comes here. It is not uncommon to get your weather here or similar a day later. In land or further north from me in Nova Scotia is usually colder in the winter than here.

Yesterday morning on the way to work at 0500 it was -31F air temp and -45F windchill..... This morning felt like a heat wave at a balmy -24F on the way to work....  just a couple hours northeast of us at the Lake Metigoshe state park the actual air temp got down to -59.6F 2 nights ago.

We have rain/sleet mix and 28.  I just put another stick of wood in the fireplace insert and made another cup of coffee.

-59 is real, I've done -43  at a Lake of the woods Ice fishing camp,  not far away it hit -53. They had us wait a day they were worried the propane would quit flowing out on the ice for the fish houses.  We will get to -20 overnight here. Fire is burning.

In January of '76 while in Seba Beach Alberta the word was one morning that the propane was froze in the tanks in some areas.  The following week there was a chinook and it was mud in the work area.

Our radar is showing that the precipitation has passed us leaving about 1 1/2" of sleet. We are at 24 degrees and a falling temperature forecast to be about 12 degrees in the morning.

We are at 31 and no power due to the many frozen rain coated SYP limbs that fell during last evening & nights weather.  SYP limbs are not designed to hold the weight and snap off.  It was a devastating event and there are many roads closed and many thousands of folks without power.  They are reporting that 30% of our county is without power and 60% of the county where my property and Cabin is.


 
Here is part of what is in my front yard and that ain't snow, it's ice.  I am thankful that I made that last firewood haul from the Cabin because the fireplace insert is our only heat.  ;)

I feel for you Magicman. Ice storms are the very worst winter weather. We had a bad one up here in December of 08. No power for a week.
Good thing you have your insert Magic, I hope your wood supply holds out. Best of luck to you.

You could probably get by with burning SYP limbs in your insert.  You should have a few  :).
