Now thats cold! I can see where a nice EFM 520 would be just the ticket for such low temperatures!!!

Nothing close to that around here today. It hit about 50 for the high here today, and It's only supposed to go down to about 34 for the low.

Barely made it to 34* today low 20's this morning. Shop Stoker had maintained 50* overnite into the morning. Had it a perfect 63-65* within an hour.

In the house, same as always. Nothing new to report, going on 5yrs the Channing is still steady and reliable as hell.

Yes indeed. On a day like this, coal-fired heat is a real blessing. My house is 75 in the basement, 72 on the main floor, and 70 in the upstairs bedrooms. Heat is on, dishwasher and washing machine are running, and it is bath-time for the little guy...no sweat for the 520.
