Technical Difficulties from on Top of the Mountain
2006-05-02
  Still cold, still burning.
I had hoped to be done with pellets. Especially as I was down to a few bags after the fifteenth and wanted to just use those up and be done with it. I was also hoping to be able to fit the entire season's ashes into the ash bucket and only empty it once. No such luck.

Still burning. Got cold and windy again (even a little bit of snow/hail) and I'm still chilled down in the basement. Tried to go a day without long underwear on and after two days without the stove on I had to go run and get them last night. Tonight the pellet's are lit again and I'm warming up a little.

Walmart ran out of pellets, but luckily now Home Depot has big piles of them. I wonder if they stock them all year round. I sure wish I had those solar hot water panels collecting heat. The sun gets upstairs so warm we have to opent the windows and let the heat out. Of course I also wish that I could close the door to the basement so that when it gets cold upstairs the worst of it doesn't make its way down here and freeze me out. Unfortunately physics is against me so I must call forth the tools of Engineering to fight back the natural order of the universe and warm my tootsies.
