We've been there.....it's weird to think about. When it's 25 below & we heat a bit extra just in case. If it get's to 75 in the house, Bingo, we are heating the house 100 degrees warmer than out. It would take the same fuel to heat the house to 185 on a warm summer day! LOL


Today... while Greg is getting buried in fresh snow & Loki is dancing with a snowgirl.... here... it's raining hot water and 40 MPH winds. We have lost a HUGE amount of snow & almost all the ice from the ice storm. We had places in the driveway that the ice was a solid three inches thick...and now it's almost gone. I'm thinking with a little help it will be gone by sunset. I thought for sure it would be icy until April. Tonight: Headed to 8 below zero. Tis a crazy year.

Holy crap!! Must be FRIGID! :funny:


Cleaned out the boiler in record time ... and didn't lose the fire either! Yeah, did it all with it still burning - stoker was unplugged, of course ... and as usual, I bled like a stuck pig through most of it. You should see my other hand! :lol:

Damn metal edges ... and lack of time .... :D Took me 48 minutes start to finish. Melted the wife's little cleaning brush ... but that's ok because she don't CLEAN anyway!

Thought the fire was done because the stoker ran for a couple minutes when I finished, and it was dark in there. So I unplugged the stoker, and let the combustion blower run while I did some other stuff ... came back 5 minutes later and the fire is blazing away in the middle!! Couldn't believe it. STILL IN THE ONE MATCH CLUB! :dancing: For the first time ever, I might add ...


Well you were right John - it's now 38° and half snowing / half raining here. That didn't take long ... At least the house and boiler water didn't have time to cool off much.

Stack temps were 70° lower as it was firing back up to temperature. :shock: Guess it was time!

Now it's snowing to beat the band, and everything's covered again! Was fun while it lasted ... but it is January after all ...

Built a new piece of furniture for my living room yesterday. I think it is much more classy than the trash can I was using. I haven't filled it yet but I think it will be a 10 bagger.

Looks good! Load 'er up!


Smitty.... my recipe to stave off a hangover.... after drinking those 3 bottles ( and their cousins in the cupboard over the microwave).... the last thing you do before you crash, pour yourself a big ol' glass of water, whatever temperature you like ( room temp works good), and in one shot, drink as much as you comfortably can. The next day... not so bad!

Yeah, for women ... :P :lol: I never learn ..... :D

I used to do that all the time ... but I think the main reason I never got hangovers before was because my BAC (blood alcohol content) never got to ZERO. I could've got a DUI for driving without drinking a drop! :lol: Now that I've cut back, very small amounts make me feel like crap the next morning ...



Nice bin Keving! Looks like a truck box that fits in the bed, minus the diamond plate. 8-)

Right on the money. The headache part of a hangover is mostly dehydration. But unfortunately you need to hydrate days before you start drinking heavily. I can't remember how many times I quit drinking.

Not very good advertisement for a guy that owns a sawmill but with 2' of snow and ice on everything I grabbed the first dry wood I came to. The chair reclines and has a 12 volt heater. I have never plugged it in. I spend to much time meditating next to the axeman as it is. That thing is quite hypnotic and has put me to sleep in the chair more than once.
