    This is the first time since I have owned the stove that I have had to use it on Memorial day weekend. woke up this morning and the house was 64 degrees. Needless to say I half filled the stove, I had just cleaned her up last weekend. Oh well as long as we are not cold.

    This was going to be my full clean and summer shut-down weekend...BUT instead it is a load up the hopper and enjoy the heat weekend.
    Looks like a June shutdown.

    Yea, this weather is crazy! I re-lit the pilots on the gas stove and insert this morning, and set the thermostats. Just to keep the wife happy. There saying high 30's or low 40's tonight. Might even have to light the wood stove tonight!

    I think there have been 3 nights in May so far, that the Revolution hasn't kicked on at some point. Don't look like there will be another until at least Tues. or Wed., if it happens then.

    Just sparked mine up as well. 65 in here and I was freezing. First time for me too this late in the year. Craziness but I hate being cold.

    Same here.

    Tore down the little stove a few weeks back and did some repairs.
    We had 80+++ F days and then it got cold and wetttttttttttttttttttttttt again.

    Since that time the stove has been running often.

    This is the nastiest Memorial Day weekend I can remember in a long time.

    Ahhhhh Welllllll.
    Nothing like a nice fire on a cold wet day.

    Heads off to curl up by the stove.

    Cool and damp, rain again today. Would have run the stove to dry the place out, but it is 74 in the living room and 55 outside with tomorrow forecasted to be 80! Still don't have the garden planted. Will try to get most of it done by the end of next week. Growing season is very short here so we can't hold off much longer. ( I do have some ripe tomatoes in the cloche). Everything is hardened off and ready to go in.

    X2 - put on a sweatshirt, it's a very low ash, high BTU and renewable source of heat!
