    Now that it is getting warmer please unplug and remove the batteries from the remote when you decide to stop your burning.

    That is all I have to say for now, carry on.

    Pretty much agree. It was 6° this morning when I got up. My stove will be in use until at least mid-May, when it will get it's finall cleaning and be unplugged.

    We're still burning here. Stoves only on for a quick blast to take the chill off. Don't expect it to be completely shutdown until mid May if were lucky! ;em

    Yep.... Burning at night still. With temps near 30° tonight? Gonna burn me some pellets. :)

    Done with the Wood eater. Had a small knee injury this Winter, so the basement steps are a last resort.

    My new stove should (Read: Had Better, be here by Mid next week!!!) be here soon. I wish the cold would stay, but I am glad Spring is finally here and can definitely wait till the Fall the start Tinkerin

    X2 Wanna bet, he was chasing the Mrs? ::-) Or maybe he's using it as an excuse to get out of the spring yard details? I used the "ol backs been acting up" to get out of racking the flower beds. Worked like a charm! :p

    well, our "off" season will start in about 3 bags. That's when we will have burned through all 6 tons we bought for the past winter.

    will just have to snuggle with the doggies to keep warm after that.

    Gosh I feel like this post might be off topic at this rate, anyway, I finally unplugged the stove this past sat. We are pretty much done. It's mid 70s during the day and low 50s in the morning. Already started cleaning the stove. I tend to do my end of season cleaning over a week or two as I try to get to everything. Finished the season with half a ton left over. Burned about 2 and 3/4 tons this season.
