How did they do that!
I was without heat for one afternoon and night.
It's winter and the temps. in the low 20's.
My boiler stopped working.
Of course it was a Sunday and without hope of getting it taken care of till the next day.
However, I have a wood burning fireplace, a nice supply of wood and an electric blanket!!
Being without power would be MUCH worse.
I spent the night in most of my clothes under my electric blanket and was quite comfortable.
Oh, I did have to put a hat on.
Now I understand the reason for "night-caps"!
I watch "Little House On The Prairie" a lot of times and wondered how they stood the wintertime.
Their only source of heat was the fireplace.
By morning the house must have been very cold as the fire burned down during the night.
I thought of that as I went out to get wood and start to build a fire first thing this morning.
The women had to be so tough. They all did. I don't think I would've survived!
How about you?
