I wish I could brag about long burn times, but because this is relatively new to me, it hasn't gotten "too" old yet. As a matter of fact, I'm glad I've kept the stove burning, cause our cold spell is continuing. It was nice to come home to a 72* house, rather than an expensive oil fired 65*. Plus the wife has helped out a ton. I will admit the R+R-ing (riddle and raking) in the morning before work isn't very pleasant given my time frame. But the afternoons don't bother me.
Now they're talking about the time change, and 1st day of spring around the corner, which disappoints me, cause my winter projects are so far behind. But on the plus side, "because" the cold is here for a little longer, I get to buy a couple more weeks of Santa coal.
