A small flea, but it's a good way to kill some time on a winter morning.

Yikes! That happened to us last year and we were out of town when it happened. Fortunately, a friend was keeping an eye on the place and called to tell me. I was able to get ahold of the oil company and they sent a tech right over.

Good luck, I hope it's not too expensive.

OT - but air in the line - their fault - had the PM done last friday and apparently the Tech did not bleed the air out of the line/filters

Warming back up

Ooops. At least you won't have to pay for that. More money for hobbies! ;)

Thanks to all who came out for the flea today! As expected attendance was down because of those concerned about covid, but it was good seeing those who were there.
