Well last night around 3 AM my power went out for the first time since installing my pellet stove. The smoke rolled into the house but it was not as bad as you would expect. Or maybe with no lights and only a flashlight it looked not so bad. I had a big time smoke smell , which I could of expelled from the house if I would not cared how cold the house got . I decided to grind out the smell and keep the heat inside.
