Seeking the Current Blog in New Hampshire (1): A surprise when I visited my first restaurant in the US.

Seeking the Current Blog in New Hampshire (1): A surprise when I visited my first restaurant in the US.

After a short trip skiing and ice climbing at Mount Washington, I went through Lancaster in New Hampshire before driving north to Colebrook, site of the first screening in New Hampshire Thursday, March 8 at 7:00 pm. It’s late so I decided to stop and eat. The first restaurant displays in the window “Seafood and steak.” Yum yum! I want to eat fish.

Sign of destiny to greet me, a nice pellet stove that propels heat on me. The flame is bright yellow and blue-purple. Nothing to do with the lazy flame of a fireplace or wood stove. For a resident of Vermont or New Hampshire pellets are a heating method just like another. But for a Quebecer who worked hard to find a pellet stove in Quebec to show it in the film, it’s is impressive.

Nicolas and the pellet stove

I insist. I’m 36 and this is the first time I see a pellet stove in a restaurant. According to the waitress, New Hampshire people have been installing those for years « because it is easy to use. You can even put a thermostat to moderate when the temperature is reached. It is also relatively inexpensive to install and power compared to oil or electricity. » A no brainer.

One thing is certain: it will not be in New Hampshire that I will see the most people impressed by the segment on biomass in the film. Even the waitress in the restaurant is very familiar with it. I think I’ll ask the question to the public in Colebrook.

See you later!

Nicolas Boisclair, co-director of the film
