Around 32 here first thing this morning. I haven't lit the Harman, but the Alaska is cranking away in the cellar and the oil burner blower is cycling on and off. It's a not roasting in here, but comfortable.
29 the forcast low for tonight, so I might fire the hand-fed this evening.

I just picked up some nut this morning and they are calling for low 30's here tonight also so I'll be firing up a load of coal in the MKI for the first time tonight. Guess I'll need a few beers for the grand opening burn. :roll:
