    Let the house cool down some today since it's up around freezing, and let the stove get cold. Stirred the coals now and then. The ash left is a small fraction of the coals I started with and it's all light and fluffy. For whatever reason, I love it. Will scoop it all out now, clean the glass and load it up again.

    Shoveling out coals may not amount to all that much lost heat, but I still don't like to do it. If it only gets up to low 30s during the day, I can't just burn down coals and maintain room temp. I've been raking coals forward and throwing a couple small splits in the back to get some cat action going. I just started doing this so I don't know how much headway I'm actually making. Seems like it might be working...
