Arctic Blast!

Well I'm back in the modern world after 48 hours with no power. I'd like to say it was an ordeal but actually I kind of enjoyed it. The wood stove kept me plenty warm, between my cupboards and the generosity of Bill and Karen I stayed well fed, I enjoy reading by candlelight and thanks to Jetboil and my antique coffee grinder I stayed properly caffeinated. The lack of hot water was an issue at first but I found that if I rode the rollers until I started dripping sweat and fantasizing about making naked snow angels a cold shower was just the thing. All in all, good practice for the coming apocalypse.

I perversely thought of you eating cans of veg-all warmed over the wood stove, hunkered down with a good book by candlelight. Next up, generator and bigger larders. Lets see some pix of the destruction in the woods!

I think C to the KI. I. D. just called you fat.


I don't think you seem like much of a larder at all.

The way the local media portrayed this last storm "Arctic Apocalypse" would have been a more fitting moniker
