I think I cursed myself with my flippant response and for that I am truly sorry.
I closed the air intake on my Mk II and shook the fire down around midnight last night then reloaded and went to bed.
Got up to a slightly chilly house this morning and what appeared to be a dead fire. Oops, forgot to open the air intake after loading.
I had to run to school so I opened the ash door on a wing and a prayer and texted my wife to keep an eye on it.
Luckily, I was greeted by a nice collection of blue ladies when I got home.
