It was quite warm last weekend, but has cooled down again, and is below freezing tonight and tomorrow night.. low 40's during the day.
Next week is forcast 60's daytime and high 30's nights.. so i still need to keep the place comfortable..
The AA took 4 days to make 3/4 tub of ashes.. and only burnt about 30-40# per day. Not bad for my place.

Yeah, I can relate. That's how I felt at the end of last season; my first with the forum. It was much easier this year but not by much. I'm already making plans for little improvements that will help me burn coal and distribute that heat better next season and I'll make my first of 5 trips to the coal dealer early next month. I can only carry 1/2 ton each trip, that's ok - the trips keep me connected. Lisa
