It's Not Quite Spring Just Yet.

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.

Today as many of you did, we had a couple inches of snow up here and the temperatures are going into the low 20's tonight.
Normally, I can let the living room stove go out for the year and run off of the basement stove. Not today, I decided to keep them both lighted. It's now March the 17th. Winter is still here up in the mountains.

Nice stove! Did you restore it yourself?

Democracy rests upon the principle that collective wisdom arises from a pool of individual ignorance. A Republic rests squarely upon objective law, and fundamentally upon those laws which restrict the scope and actions of government.

Hey William, it doesn't look anything like spring in your neighborhood. But it's a nice excuse to keep that beautiful stove of yours operational. :) Mine will be out here in just a few more days. Enjoy.
I got coal in my Christmas stocking. (Yey!)
