I got up this morning and it was 37 in Girardville Pa. Thank goodness I had already done my pre-season check over, had coal, had burn bags and the stove was ready to go. I test fired it and decided to keep it lit on the 15th. We had a lot of people over yesterday and the house temp shot up to 82 so silly me I unplugged the stove. Momma woke up this morning and asked "Why is it cold in the house ?" I reminded her that it was hot in the house last night and I unplugged the stove.

Her reply was....... The Look. :mad:

That will teach me to not pay attention to weather reports.

Rev,Add a little rain and dampness to that temperature of 37 deg. and we all will be getting that look. You know,that look that says "Better find that match right now if you know what's good for ya". Mike
