I cleaned the pellet stove and flue this afternoon. It’s a simple annual chore, and it is impossible to do neatly.

I now look like a Dickensian urchin.

It’s safe, though.

It ran for two minutes and the feed motor broke.

*sigh* That’ll teach me to buy cheap eBay replacement parts. A genuine part is on the way and it isn’t very cold yet. I’m off to the showers.
