Good morning! Coffee and bacon really hits the spot. Busy day ahead of us, 14 people coming to dinner tomorrow...gotta get this place shined up a bit and get started on the food.

Pretty soon you will have a district heating system up and running. The boiler won't mind, it could probably handle double the load that is currently on it.

Are you taking the 8N to "town" to pick up the coal?

You and me both. The heating season is far from over near this 38 degree pond called Lake Champlain. I see plenty of wood smoke during my morning drive to work, and I'm pretty sure I saw a chimney fire on Thursday afternoon. The house in question has been "smudging" their stove all winter, and it finally caught up with them. I didn't see any flames coming out of the chimney, but the smoke was so thick I couldn't see across the road...the smoke was the tell-tale sign, it smelled like burning tar/creosote. After we got through the smoke and aired out the car, my wife told me "I'm sure glad we burn coal instead of wood". I couldn't agree more! The EFM is keeping the basement warm & dry, and the house is 72.
