No clue why but it looks like I have some investigating to do. The Dwyer was still reading that I had a ~.02 draft and the fire appeared to be going good.

Warm and slightly rainy/foggy here today as well. My chimney doesn't really like days like that.


Did you get it sorted out? Did it have anything to do with the coke you were burning awhile back?


The coke is long gone. I think I must have choked the fire out a bit. There are a lot of fines in this load I got.

LsFarm wrote:Good morning everyone, [almost afternoon ! ] Lots of rain overnight, lost about half the snow, and unfortunately the rain uncovered the ice from before Christmas. It was much nicer to walk and drive on packed snow.
But, it's supposed to continue to be warm for a few days. so maybe the ice will melt..
If not, I know where there is a lot of coal ash !!

The road out front was ice and packed snow. The county truck came by to spread sand.. He slid right off into the swamp. They brought in a big wrecker/tow truck, but couldn't get the right angle.

I couldn't walk on the wet-ice road surface, so I walked through one of my barn-lot spaces.. went through the tree/fence-line. I offered the crew to hook onto a good sized tree on my property, They were concerned about hurting the tree.. I laughed, said there was no shortage of trees in the fence-line.

They wrapped a strap around the base of the tree, I think the tree was at least 18-20" at the base. Then a snatch-block was attached to the strap, the cable run through the block then to the truck.. The angle was much better.

I watched the crew fall several times and went back to get a loader scoop of ash to scatter on the ice. but by the time I got back they were just starting the second pull. I didn't get too close, I don't like steel cables under tension.

Fun stuff this morning.

I haven't yet been able to make my %%#$##$$% phone send the photos or the videos.. Damned 'technology'.

Finally got the photos to show up.

Been seeing Marcus Latrell quite a bit on The Blaze TV on Glenn Beck's show. I will definitely make it a point to venture out of the house & into the city for this one. It's setting records everywhere, and everyone that's seen it says it is the story of the century.

Check out this theater in TX that cancelled a bunch of Hollywood movies, just to make room for Lone Survivor. 8-) http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/01 ... -survivor/
