Season coming to a close?

It is still a little cold and definitely very wet here in Westbrook. Our sumps are still going strong. With a forecast of plus 70 degrees this weekend is our heating season over?

Today is the last heating day for the Gibraltar.... The fire is just about out. :(

The Jotul has been out for about two weeks...........(This was Freddy's 507).....

We burned just under 5 tons heating 3,100 sq/ft of old farm house.

Glad to hear the Jutol was kept going all winter. She's a little workhorse!

Yaaa....75-80 today they say, but, well..... I dunno....heating season isn't over that's for sure. I'll let the AA go for a while yet.

I let our LL go out for just two days and then had to start it up again. And today there is snow on the lawn. Guess we will be running the stove until June at this rate. It does a wonderful job of keeping the whole house dry for this very damp spring.
