I have gotten so used to burning partially seasoned wood over the years that the glass on the stove used to need cleaning almost daily. This year I had only cleaned it once when one piece of wood left a black patch where the moisture and smoke came out on the glass as I loaded North-South. This morning as I reloaded the stove I thought that maybe I should give the glass a wipedown. While there wasn't much on the glass it was enough that when I looked at the fire after it seemed like a brand new stove. I can only imagine what joys await next winter when we get into wood that has been seasoning for more than 12 months. I wonder how many people have been turned off of wood heat because of impatience and improperly seasoned firewood. Imagine how many stoves are sitting idle in basements and garages due to these factors? If I had the patience and money right now I would very much like to get my WETT certification because there has to be a significant market in our region for "wood heat coaching". The challenge would be getting people to pay for it when the very nature of being a wood heat fan means we are self sufficient and independent by nature.
