For the record, that electrified, cylindrical object I've been jabbing at the warlock would be considered more sadistic torment than taunt.
Corn stoves are a beautiful thing when you are surrounded by farmers that have known your family before you were ever even a twinkle in Daddy's eye. The bad part for corn stoves is the ramping up of methanol plants. We have 2 or 3 already in progress around the state. The price of corn has been steadily rising. (but still cheaper than fossil fuels or electricity and less messy than wood) I, myself, have not yet jumped on the cornwagon. Still heating with "propane and propane products," courtesy of the big, white, 1000 gallon tank outside. I've looked at them, but my nearly 200 year old house and its poor insulation would make even the largest of them wheeze. Maybe when the price comes down, then only as a supplement. By that time, I'll probably have some sort of hybrid heat pump anyway.
On the plus side, there are at least 3 inches of snow on the ground right now. Finally, a snowstorm that doesn't fail to meet forecast.
