How to Tell It’s Time to Fire Up The Woodstove

When you wake up and it’s 54 degrees in the kitchen and that doesn’t feel “that cold” to you. Seriously, it’s chilling right down up here in Maine. No snow yet, but that’s just because it hasn’t rained when it was cold enough. That might change Wednesday. That said, I have to say I’m looking forward to winter, even though I know a lot of Mainers will hate me for saying it. What with DKC’s job and the chance to save up for heat over the course of the year, I feel much better prepared than we were last year at this time. Good thing, too–since the word on the street is that it’s going to be a really cold winter. I fired up the snowblower, and it’s primed and ready to go. I have my DVRed movies, I work at a library with plenty of access to anything and everything I’d like to read . . . what’s not to love about winter, besides the fuel costs? 🙂
