    It was 33 degrees with morning with a wind chill of 23.

    I had the oil burner set at 58 degrees and it was running this am. Still have 1/4 of a tank from 3 winters ago and refuse to put more in it!

    Ordered the high limit switch for our stove yesterday. Hopefully it comes soon.

    Hello

    Monday morning it was 43 Deg F outside and pretty chilly.

    I picked up a backup stove this year. So I am limping along with that. It was an old broken P61a for the converted garage under the house. If I open the door to the basement and upstairs, it just about heats the whole house. I think it needs a new control board or room sensor since it does not control the temp very well.

    I have to order another pipe to get my main stove hooked up for this year. A p61a also. I popped in the ignition upgrade kit, in that one after I got it broken also. To make it look good, I got the new door and nickel trim kit, then added a hopper extension for better usability.

    Do you think having a backup stove is a good idea?

    Lows of 30, sunny highs in the mid fifties. My new insert is at the dealer 60 miles away. Getting the hole ready.

    Indeed! I bought the first Castille in 2005-06 and the second for the room over the garage in 2008. That is exactly what I had in mind. If I loose a part on the stove in the house, I can cannibalize or just swap.

    Good idea and that is a very good stove too. It is nice and if there is a question about the control box working. In your case you can just try it in the other stove! Great plan!

    Ski resort is opening today in MN. Wild Mountain :( I thought it was cool out, but. I guess having X-mas stuff out is not really out of line.

    Your October record may be in jeopardy! I know mine is, along with September.

    Mid forties at night, high fifties in the day. Haven't had a frost yet this year. We've had a persistent high pressure area stalled over the Pacific NW for the last week, foggy mornings, sunny afternoons.
