Good evening all,
Made my 1st mistake of the season today. With the business of having a 8 month old after I riddled the Surdiac this morning I must have forgotten to fill the hopper. Came home to a very live stove so I riddled it as normal, i opened the top of stove, looked into hopper and all I saw was glowing coal and dancing blues. Looked in the front glass and coal was down below hopper opening.
I am glad it wasn't dead when I got home and it was easy to fill and we are back to normal.
Will definitely remember to fill hopper at each tending from now on.
