I just thought about another reason I am thankful I switched to COAL.
I came home from work spent 2 hours clearing snow, with probably what would have been 3 I still had to get out cut wood and feed the wood boiler.
It sure feels good to just add another coal with my super-sak skids and kick back and wait for spring.
AHHHHHHHHHHHH it is almost boring HA HA HA HA.

Iknow what you mean. I almost got frostbitten fingers tonight changing my ice locked windshield wipers in a 12 degree, 20 mph wind.

The poor outdoor wood boiler guys have the ironic situation that the more they need the heat, the more time the have to spend outdoors. Go figure.......

Your install looks very well done. That is one pretty looking control panel!
