Yeah Fred same here wunderground.com is calling for 12 to 18 inches. Glad my boiler is a hand fed in case power goes out. Generator can then be dedicated for fridge & freezer & well.

We are forecast to get 5-9 inches overnight Monday and into Tuesday. That will be our first measurable snow this winter. However, it's not as cold as they said it was going to be. No matter, after laying off for 2 weeks the Marks Brothers are up and running once again. Taking the chill off with the gas furnace just isn't the same. Stay warm, Lisa

Wrongo there CN. I went to Maine for snow 2 weeks ago and came home early since there was none !!!!! Looks like I will put more miles on the snowmobile here at home than up there.

And we were told that the Greenville, ME school district has like some 30 kids from grades K-12....... Sorta like Freetown !!!!

Rob R; I like my HYDRONIC space heater! No fridge or chair in the boiler room. 12 hour feedings, ash removal every 36 hours or so. Dumping ash in old septic tank to fill it in some.(not deep tank). Keeps space in house toasty warm 70*, 24/7.

Hmmm, three trees outside the arm with big yellow crosses on them but as yet uncut. If I lose power I will be very annoyed. It would mean turning up the wick on the Garnet and the Wings Best together. The trouble is that makes me very sleepy and the warm radiant heat along with a small JW Black Label puts me into a comfortable all night snooze. Last time I dreamed I was an EFM owner and woke up in a panic ..... ahahahahhahahaha, I slay myself. .... incoming.
