We started out our weekend with the pellet stove taking a crap. We shut it down to clean it, and it wouldn’t start up. My knight in shining armor came to my rescue! Yay! It took him a while but by a series of trial and error he figured that it wasn’t getting the proper airflow. He proceded to do some very technical work (he shoved a vacuum hose into one end of the stove) And it worked!  Our next disaster to avoid was our hay running out. So we bought 6 round bales. It should be enough to see us through another month. Now to top off our wonderful weekend we have a so called arctic storm coming our way. Temperatures with wind chill are expected to be -20 to -30. In michigan that is pretty rare…so batten down the hatches!
