    Here we go! Cold weather in northern Vermont for the next couple of days. Looks like tonight or tomorrow my stove will make the first burn of the season.

    I remember last spring when the regulars said that the forum would be done until fall. I guess that never happened!

    This is my first full year with a pellet stove. Even if oil drops, I'm still very happy that I have another option.

    as I posted on this subject on the corn burn site

    When the WPO factor becomes unbearable, or she berates me at least three times that she is cold, or I begin to see signs of someone sneaking an electric heater out of the closet.

    then Ill lite baby boiler

    Till then - she can bake something or we can discuss the bed warming thread again! Rolling Eyes

    I like it when they beg and or offer

    You're a "piro" when you burn the stove and air conditioning at the same time.

    Well... the stove finally kicked on in the wee hours of the morning last night. It looks like the weather is warming up, so it probably won't come on again for a little while. But for now... the 2008/2009 heating season has officially kicked off.

    If my stove goes on before the middle of October, I'm NOT going to be happy....as much as I want to see the fire dancing in the firepot, I also don't want to burn ANY type of fuel any sooner than needed. :coolmad:

    Nah, that would qualify for a dumbass with more $$ than brains. :lol:



    My stove isn't going on until it's cold enough to need it since I run it 24/7.
    Has to be steady outside temps in mid 40's for it to go below 70 inside.
    I have some oil in the tank to take the chill off if we get cold days here and there
    before the real stuff sets in.
