Our Heat is Out

Our heat is out and the spammers have abandoned my blog. Things are looking grim.

Econo-Girl cannot find wood pellets to save her life, either. Alas, they always sell out around here. But with the current situation, finding those damn wood pellets is high on my list.

It is quite fashionable to use alternative fuels these days. And it is such a good feeling, too. A nice fire that produces steady heat. We didn't really appreciate how much heat it was providing until we ran out of fuel.

So it's off to the hinterlands to find some pellets!

Well, that doesn't sound fun..

Our heater has stopped working too. Luckily, we bought nearly a cord of wood earlier, in November, so we keep a nice fire going in the fire place from wake-up to bed time. It's cozy.

I might have to get another blanket. It is supposed to get to the 50s tonight. BBBRRRRR!

The brand slips my mind right now, but I'll look when I get home.

Apparantly, two of the three pellet factories burned down, so there is a shortage east of Illinios.

Fireplaces are great, aren't they? Humans have huddled around fires for millenia.

Econo-girl is thinking about getting a wood burning stove for the other fireplace. It was made for burning coal, so doesn't work with wood well at all. Tends to smoke a lot.

Sure, Iggy. Rub it in.
