Yes we we're spoiled to say the least the last few weeks. I had to re learn the stove in order to push her hard for those windy nights. :lol:

Turn knob at bottom, open IPA 90, place feet on boot rail. What do you think this is a hydronic boiler mess? Incoming...... :)

I burned more coal this weekend than any other all season. 0 degrees and brisk wind gives the EFM a chance to run a little more, but it does the job without any adjustments at all.

Did you ever notice most of the boiler guys have a beer fridge and chair in the boiler room? With no knobs to turn, MPD to adjust, grates to shake, or clinkers to fish, we have more time to spend enjoying IPA's. :)

It certainly is nice not having to bring wood in every couple of hours to feed the old hand fed or stack backs of stove and nut coal in the back room for the overnights.

A gentle poke at the hydronic crowd is always good for amusement. Where is spring, I am bored.

When I get bored I go into the hand fed forum and refer to someone's stove as a space heater. :bag:

WOW FF, and so both pupils need to stay home. 12 to 18" here Tuesday with winds of up to 40mph. I was ready to take the plows off and call it a day. I am a sensitive Hudson Valley boy, I can't take this. I am waking up my AK180 with buck for the first time this winter. My space heater is getting a work out. If I wanted this chit I would have moved to Maine.
