But the oven fire is so delightful. Doesn't really work, does it?
We are in the middle of an ice storm, one that will last for 24 hours, then comes the snow to cover up all that nice ice.
In 2005 we had a a similar storm. Our homestead lost power for 3 days. We tried to tough it out, but after a while, the oven would no longer keep that burning cold away, and we ended up moving in with my mother. Hopefully this year, we can keep our power.
It is times like these that we really talk about living off the grid. We talk about it at other times, but not so much when we have instances that remind us that we are at the mercy of our electric co-op. We do have plans, but it is time and sometimes money that stops us from completion. We are forced to buy/acquire things slowly. I need a sponsor.
The Tools series will be back up. I thought it might be better to do it once a week, instead of having a very long 2 week or so straight commentary on tools.
