    Same thing here in Maine and I've got the Super 27 cranking in the basement keeping the first floor at 72. Nothing like a nasty blizzard to remind you how great it is to have free wood, a great stove and a great place to come to learn and share.

    Well, 20 degrees is not all that bad.....especially when it is nice and warm inside.

    It was about 25 this morning. I had to add some wood at 5am but now it is 32 outside and 76 inside. Most the time, it keeps us about 78 - 80.

    The Avalon is a monster. We haven't used the propane for the heat most this year (we still use the propane for hot water and cooking).

    Agreed 100% . . . the only problem is the knowledge that at some point I have to leave the comfort of the toasty warm house to go out again and plow the driveway a second time . . . or a third time even.

    Agreed . . . Cheapheat . . . this is one of my favorite forums . . . which seems to amuse many of my friends who do not think heating with wood would be all that exciting to read about . . . welcome to the forum.
