Over the next two weeks I will be laying out over $1000 for heating oil, firewood, and a chimney sweep. The majority of our winter heating needs are now fixed, excepting some hard physical work moving and stacking wood.
Now I turn my attention to a few small things that would make being without power more an inconvenience than a real problem. A percolator, camping stove... things like that.
This weekend, an organization of the pantry and some judicious topping off of comestibles.
Next weekend... stacking firewood in places handy to the doors.... and in piles placed with malice aforethought.
What are YOU doing to get ready for a Winter of discontent?
