One of the worst days of the year is when I let my coal fire go out. Ive ran an awful long time with under 3 ton this year. Will be 6 months soon. But when its gone, its gone. Damned wood then, lol

Relit again last Thursday and got a few more bags of nut. Looks like Tuesday is gonna be warm but the rest of the week keeping the stove on a slow burn and adjusting windowstats as needed is the plan. Running low on rice for the boiler as well.

Enjoy the last weeks of your stoves gents. I disassembled, vacuumed, and polished mine for the summer, last Sunday. As much as I might be tempted, I'll be on oil again, before I dirty my clean stove.

Well with that beautiful stove I can understand not wanting to dirty it up for a couple weeks of heating. With my simple Harman the clean up is relatively easy so I don't mind relighting it.

At least with your Harmon, you get to "visually" enjoy the beauty of a burning coal bed. Stay warm.
