I was at my father's house clearing some downed branches for him and on the way home I couldn't believe how many smoking chimneys I saw. There are lots of homes with out electric and it was in the high 20s last night. Lots of fireplaces going for the first time, and lots of wet wood getting burned. My sister and her family gave up on her fireplace and found hotel room. My across the street neighbor told me that bought bundles of wood at Home Depot. I brought a tractor cart load over for him. I also gave some wood to my other neighbor for his fireplace. It was nice to share my wood with my non wood burning neighbors during a tough time. maybe now they'll understand what all the noise and wood pile s are about. Lots of very cold people out there again tonight. My wife does women's imaging at a hospital and she said that lots of her patients made appointments today just so that they could warm up. I sure am glad that I have a good stove, good wood, and I know how to use it. This is the first time we've been without power at my house for more than a couple hours since we bought it in 2003. Oh yeah, you also got to love those LED headlights!
