Hi all

I was searching the web today for information on burning Cottonwood trees for heating and found this website. I thought those of you who heat with wood in the winter would like this info.

Here in Tollgate Canyon, Utah. I find the crackling sound of the fire adds ambiance to my day and helps warm me quickly after my x-country ski. Reduced heating/propane bills also are a bonus. My husband loves many things about the fire and whole wood gathering season. It is helps him stay in shape in winter and after bike season is over. I think he has FIREWOOD OCD as described on the web site he likes to talk about his extensive wood pile and how many cords of wood we have stacked. It may also be all of the tools involved, chainsaw, ax, and maul. He takes great pride in all of this equipment and I have to admit there is something about a man that can split wood.

so… does anyone know anything about burning cottonwood?

Happy New Year!

Sundance Film Fest is one of the things Park City is known for. This festival draws people from all over the world. People come out to see the stars and movies that will be talked about for the next year. For Parkites, it is a time is a mixed blessing. Restaurants and bars are packed and there is no parking in town. It is also the best time to ski. Locals can be sure that the hotels are full and the slopes are nearly empty. You may even have a star sighting on the resort. After all you can watch movies all the time. Sundance starts off Thursday 01/21/10 and continues for the week.

Locals can buy tickets 01/10/10 at the Sundance box office of main st.
