Our Vigilant woodstove has been around for awhile, just about 30 years in this kitchen. Two nights of driving rain and wind and a couple damp days with the cold lingering really makes for woodstove weather. Last night was amazing! The wind howled and the rain pelted the front of our house so much that my 'better half' even contemplated moving to the couch to get away from that roaring sensation that sounded like the "3:10 to Yuma" racing through the bedroom. As suddenly as it started, it was over about midnight. Lots of communities in southern Maine lost power last night and are struggling with flooding this morning. Us? Sump pump's doing its thing, the trimming of trees CMP did last fall worked and the Vigilant has the kitchen toasty. Snow is forecast for later today. Bring it on!
