Still burning AND still the first match!! Gretel is cold. But the bear is at 450* and cooking. Only about 300# left from the 6 ton

Hope the warm comes soon or else Santa bags here we come 8-)

Still burning here too. Idling the stove around 140-200* depending on the temps. The other night we had some real bad thunderstorms, lost power a few times briefly, that was a bit harrowing as I had to turn the stove up to keep a draft when there was no power. Draft dropped right to 0"wc on the Dywer. Yesterday morning when I woke up it was 29*. :shock:

Burning again here, last weekend we went away from Sunday to Monday when I came home she was out and I had all my coal dumped out onto the floor due to uncontrolled ashing grate. I gave her a good cleaning and fired her back up. I am going to have to put a timer on it to keep it running through the warmer weather for my hot water needs. I was hoping it was the coal I was burning last season that gave me such fits with staying lit but I see I was wrong. Not looking forward to the timer option but looks like it is a necessary evil.

I thought I was done for the season and let it go out on Sat Apr 13, only to re-light it on Fri Apr 19. I'm remodeling and I didn't want my paint job ruined by big temperature swings. Still have plenty of UAE Harmony nut left in the bin, probably 2 tons yet.

So now that UAE coal is no longer.. who wants to buy some? :D I'll sell what I got left for $500 :up: LOL
