Still Burning?

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'm glad I lit the match yesterday. Ice on the patio table but a nice 75 inside.

I can't believe anyone is still burning. I shut down what seems like months ago. Sure it gets a little cool in the house overnight but with the windows open what would you expect. :D

:D the swings up here on the plateau don't have safety straps 8-)

there is sometimes a 12* difference from up here in the Pines to down at the Gap, in the 'Burgs.....

We had snow the other day, folks down there looked at me like I was crazy when I told em :shock:

Kinda like that look that the Stove Fairy gets when he trodds the beaten path to Chester NY.... :roll:

this area is where they used to farm ice, to supply the folks in News Yorks City and Filth-a-Deltheia.. so there's remenants of cold damp air, everywhere :roll:

Thought I would be done by now, however, I am still burning. Snow and mid 30 F temps dictates my keeping the coal stove burning. I actually enjoy this.

Weather report said FREEZE WARNING for tonight. What is going on ? Memorial day Sunday and they predict a freeze warning? Where is Al Gore when you need him?
