Damn Warm Weather...

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.

I was working at the time and had a good year. It's NOT cheap. :shock:
I've got 2 Davis Weather stations in service right now...Vantage pro at my house just like Smitty's (in use since 2004), and Weather Monitor 2 (in use since 2003) at my Mom's in Colorado.

They're not cheap but they are good quality and if you know what you're looking for you can find good deals on line.
