I wonder who else nearby has windows open??
Wood'nCoal, are you running the Alaska too?
None open here, except when I holler at them squirrels
If it stays this warm, we'll be chasing bears. That's usually by the third week in march - they'll be on my deck soon.
Saving the high BTU stuff for the weekend. Since my cart is stocked like a wine cabinet, I can pull the coal that suits the weather for the hand fed. The last load of Reading pea is more like buckwheat. No draft problems yet but burning the pea-wheat keeps the burn rate down. It works pretty good. Load late at night and again ~ 1pm. Takes a long time to gt up to full temp with the air opened up more than usual at night. Closed it down this afternoon and it's now getting to 550 on the stove top -just getting on the hot side of the pm load The 'roost' room with the stove is 74, kitchen 71, upstairs hall 70 as I post this. Planing to switch back to the superior tomorrow night, looks like for most of next week.
