Why have you not gotten a stoker?


I do have my AnthraKing AK110 crankin' in the house and I love that stove, it's making it for now as of course with a 7000' leak box to heat it will be outclassed some day. A little Jotul 507 in the study to amuse me and an extra brand new AK110 ready for when it gets real bad that I have never even fired up yet - I hope it works. There are technical reasons why a single AK220 was not considered. Somebody had to pay for Dave's arsenal :D. I pray for the Chinese military if they ever try to take Berwick :) . Last winter did not count as a winter around here so I never even tested it out. I am very happy with my heating system but of course all this is small time stuff compared to your output.


Trust me coalnewbie my ability to purchase my toys comes mostly from being frugal in the past, and my wife works as well. We are not getting rich from anyone especially with all the corporate BS we have to pay for. Not counting raw material prices. It will be a while before the R&D and testing is paid for. If anyone wants to buy at double retail price that would help. :D

On this hill, we got 1"-16" and that is the truth! Boy did the wind blow (and still is).

Last year I clear cut 10 acres to the North West and bulldozed the land nice and flat so my house enjoys 60 acres of open field and it is amazing the difference the wind makes. 3 out of 4 doors to my home do not have to be shoveled because the wind blows it down to dirt! It is interesting to see where the snow drifts and no longer drifts now, but I never said I had a super interesting life, I am a sheep farmer after all. :D

On that topic it is always funny to watch them. Despite having a sheep shed they can run into, everyone of them were white fluff balls in the snow yesterday never even thinking about getting out of the weather. Oh the warmth of wool!

Dave, Dave, chill out my good friend. Firstly, you don't have to explain anything to me. Secondly, your stoves are fantastic and reasonably priced. Every morning I think you for your design skills. The Libturd philosophy of envy is not alive here at all, I hope you make millions and enjoy your guns/whatever. I thought that is what capitalism was all about. Your stoves save me money every day so that I can go out and waste it on things that are completely stupid but without hurting anyone else also. That is also capitalism. Hopefully, one day we will throw the current idiots out and go back to what made America great. I have my doubts however - the evils of reading history books. A dependency society is not easy to shake out of the tree as people have to starve to really get motivated and we have created a society where people can vote themselves money.

People like yourself are the very reason the GOP is in that shape it is today. You can't think of a thing besides name calling and how lovely (you think) the past was. Until the GOP can get more thinkers (like Dave , Larry, Kevin, Fred and others who are reasonable people and make good arguments and not adolescent shite, the party will stay right where they are. Myself, I hope you stay a good strong GOP supporter. It can only help (the other aide). :D

As far as the storm goes, which is the topic after all, we got a pretty good hit here on the coast also. Only about 10" of snow but that very heavy and wet stuff that the blower hates. Took me an hour to clear the drive enough to get out for work so that's where I'm off to. Have a great day everyone and stay warm.

How did politics make it into the snow storm thread? Sweep that stuff over to the political forums.

Absolutely right Rob. My Bad. Sorry I took the bait. ;)

The storm left some really nasty heavy stuff. The blower would throw it yesterday, just clogged up. Got colder over night and had a lighter layer on top with the slush at the bottom. Here's what it looked like hanging on the trees at the end of the drive early this morning.

What a difference a few miles inland makes.

We are only 15 miles from the coast and yet our snow was so dry and powdery that it is blowing everywhere. I plowed the 6 inches we got with the tractor and it pushed so easily that when I got hung up on the combing bank, I wondered why! Come to find out I was in 2 wheel drive! Anyway we just came back from a trip to Belfast and the snow had completely blown across the road the drifting was so bad. Sure glad I had my Ford Focus to get me through the foot of snow (Insert tongue deeply into cheek at this point)!

I am glad we did not get much more then this. I got to cut a load of wood the next few days!

I just finished plowing as it it is no longer snowing here but very windy . We got about 14 inches according to the news ,it was hard to tell as it drifted so bad , up to my knees in places . We have a total of 30 inches from these 2 storms , I hope this isn't an indication of what this winter is going to be like .
