It's not my fault.....

that is got cold enough to fire up the stoker again tonight.

Honest - I did not jinx us by doing the final cleaning on the stoker. I shut down about 3 weeks ago, but held off on the final cleanout figuring that once I did it would drop into the 20's again.

So it wasn't me........

who was it....'fess up people!!! :D

Not mine either!
The RC damper on the EFM hit the stops a few times when I was down there before. Even the damper on the cold Harman has been moving.
35 here right now, going down to 23 tonight. The magnolias across the road are in bloom.

It was me,I hit the off switch on the KAA2,disassembled and cleaned it for 5 hours,rototilled and planted a bunch of early garden stuff,pruned and sprayed the fruit trees and went over the mower.I feel somehow I provoked Mother Nature and she put me in my place.A rising tide lifts all ships and I am sorry but you have to take some of the learning experience with me.The moral of the story is "Keep your hand off the switch until sweat runs off your elbow". My new motto. Ha Ha Mike

OK Mike, I knew it had to be somebody on here causing this reversal of global warming!! I think I may have contributed to it also by cleaning up the tractor and mower and cutting the grass over the weekend. :D

No problem though, I was happy to fire up again last night and feel the warmth. But I used the last of my Cowboy charcoal now so I'll have to keep it running!

I didn't know that grass cutting was a factor, I'm guilty of that but you couldn't tell by looking we had a good freeze & frost last night & it's heading West but getting seasonal here. 8-)
