    Make sure your exhaust and oaks are not buried today...co poisoning is a real thing. That totally lazy flame will be the first sign.

    Good advice Scott. I checked last night and all seemed well, just had to knock some icicles off the OAK vent. Looked this morning and the drift wasn't near my vent pipe. People, be smart and safe... take your time with this one. Put a few brews in the snow bank for when you're done.

    FINALLY got to snowblow a path to my walk out basement. En route, what did I find buried in a monster drift?...the Buderus intake. Good thing it was fluffy dry snow and I only use the boiler for DHW. Don't think it ran much anyway :)
