Hope to Fire up the Stove Soon.

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

P.S. Still waiting on my coal delivery from Squire Lumber. They said about 6 weeks. I only got about 2 more to go. Then I am all set. hehehe

Same here. Looking forward to lighting the Jr up and keeping her lit. Though part of me wouldn't mind getting through November with temps in the 60's. Sure would make the winter more tolerable.

X3 on the temptation to get her roasting, but the temps here are still almost 60 daytime highs too. Altho it feels OK at nite, my little 1500sq/ft farmhouse reaches about 80-85 daytime (with the Surdiac on), which isn't too pleasant in my book. (Altho my wife and kids probably wouldn't mind).Besides that, I'ld hate to "pollute" the air anymore than I have to. Don't want to "tic off" Al Gore anymore than necessary. :mad:
I got coal in my Christmas stocking. (Yey!)
