Camping in Winter?


We had a big wind storm yesterday with wind gusts up to 70 miles per hour!

I have been without power for almost 24 hours.  The house sure gets cold without heat in a hurry. It makes one appreciate the basic amenities.

I’m not sure how long we and 168,000 other people will be without power.  The newspaper reported that it could take several days.  So I tried to keep some of our food cold in an ice chest.

It helped to sketch the ice chest to take my mind off of how cold I feel at the moment.   😨

A friend who has heat – invited us for dinner.  I feel so grateful! ❤️

May you share a warm cup of kindness to someone today!  ☕️

  3. Oh so sorry! We had that same storm and were out of power for awhile too. Hope you get it back soon. We put some gas logs in last year so we could have heat. We were out for over a week when OK had that big ice storm several years back. Thank goodnes for art and good friends!

  11. Well, gosh! Keep warm! Look up the flower pot heater. In a small area it will help keep you warm.
