Snow storm putting strain on power company, the supposedly are short on fuel which seems odd to me, just an excuse to charge higher rates for electricity. Power off then on 20 30 times is past 2 days. They want heat cut back to 60s, unplug all non in use items. Already do that. Drove 20 miles yesterday on unplowed snow covered roads to get kerosene. Tried to get before snow hit, Wal-Mart, tac, home depot sold out, gas station that sells closed, thus the trip Monday morning. 8 bucks+ per gallon. I remember when kerosene was 10 cent per gallon, gas was 29 cent per gallon. Nevertheless, I am set, 5 gallons kerosene, 6 chords of wood should I need it. Yoga, tgym abs. 39 minutes outside 2 degrees and wind chill minus 14, starting warming 4wheeler, moving trash cans, taking out trash for self and sister. We get second snow storm tonight.
