I'd say This Winter Blast has Folks wishing they'd of stayed with it a little longer. It's a guessing game,for sure. Who needs Vegas when you've got action like this! We'll be here in the Off-Season,so stop by. And you're right,nows the time to remember the Beating this Winter has given,and hit the ground running on Projects to be more than ready for the next one! Take Care ! :up:

Bet after last night the 36 drops to 18 hrs. I can only assume that your are distraught for not having the 'Classic Memco' on line!!! It really sucks when a hand fed boiler performs better than expected. The damned Memco won't even make a good 'Yard Ornament'. Best decision you have made......now, for the transition to a stoker......as you get older and hurt more when you get home......................... Even Smitty admits that no brain cells were harmed with the transition. I am confident that a team of Clydesdales couldn't pry his fingers off that stoker of his! :idea: :!: :)

Have to get more coal , the only thing is the ground is so wet that Ill have to get it with my pickup so the coal truck doesn't get stuck in my yard , I can put 1 1/2 in my dodge ram should be good till fall (think I said the same thing in Feb when I got 3ton over what I thought was more then I would use all winter 8ton ) :mad: But if I was burning oil this winter I would be in the poor house!!!!!!!!
