Finally burned out..

PostBy: btrowe1 On: Sun Apr 28, 2013 8:38 pm

4/28/13, could be last day of burning for the 1st 1/2 of 2013. One of the longest burn season I've had in 10 years of recordings.
There's a little left the hopper.I didn"t go down and move it over to the feed, I guess if needed I could fire it back up, But I also have wood for the fireplace so if anything does come up I'm pretty sure it would be short lived.

I was trying to burn it all out so I didn"t need to remove it when I do the cleaning, but oh well.

Any one else still have their systems still on, besides the one"s who burn year round.

I just read where (in the USA at least) this is the second coldest spring season (to date) in all of recorded history going back to about 1870 when detailed temperature records began being kept.

The coldest spring ever recorded was in 1975.

Well good lol. The tree huggers won't have global warming to rant about this year hahaha....

I plan to load the Clayton one more day then let her burn out. Only lit her twice this season. I'm feeling very comfortable with my operating skills now and have developed an efficient routine for keeping her happy :D

Still at it and will keep it until after this next couple of cool rainy days.This Keystoker is so easy to start that it is not any more difficult than a wood fire should a further need arise. I think a lot of this little boiler because it actually pays me something not like a bank account these days. Mike

Shut down the 110 today and started to do the clean up . I spent about 4 hrs. cleaning it up and still quite alot to do . The 110 is very easy to work on but there is lots of clean up if you are going to shut down for the summer .
