A year and a week goes by and now my new heating unit went boom and has stopped working. The freezing rainstorm going on has made travel near impossible, knocking over trees and powerlines due to the added ice and now my heater decides to die now that a week as passed since it’s warranty is up. Time to light the fireplace for the next few days. I best bring in some of the wet, ice encrusted firewood from outside so it has a chance to thaw and dry before my small stack in the garage runs out.
At least the sight outside has it’s own beauty to witness, even though one of my pine trees broke a main branch under the weight of the ice.
