Yes, here we go again. I got my stove all back together after it's cleaning. After I removed the accumulated flyash the thing burns like an entirely different stove.
I have to relearn its nuisances - just in time though as the Mid-Atlantic States are being hit with yet another cold front. The temperature is 20* with a light wind this morning. But I see spring on the horizon as the weather pattern for the week is one day with 20* and the next 40* - typical of a spring pattern. March is typically our coldest month so I feel comfortable that the really cold stuff is still to come. I say bring it on - the Mark II did great down to 4* in Jan and with its "new" draft I'm betting it can handle a few sub-zero days.
Well, I'm off to "early start" the school bus parking lot so none of the students are left standing in the cold because a bus didn't start. Have a great day!
