Well we started getting snow Fri, just as I headed home from Aldi's, and I was sure glad I didn't stop anywhere else because by 5PM it was getting nasty, icy and much colder!! When it finally stopped by Sat morning at about 10AM we had drifts over 2 feet in spots and a good 12 plus inches on the ground!! Plus the winds were howling and blew drifts everywhere!
I was glad to be sitting inside looking out and staying nice and warm! Well until the furnace decided to back up and it started to smoke so bad and continued till late evening when poor hubby decided it would be a way nasty nite and crawled on the roof to try and unplug it!! You see we have an old coal furnace we have burned wood in now for the past 15 years and for the most part it is great except when it decides to do this! it was pretty awful so now have told hubby he needs to clean the chimney every month because we had the same thing happen last winter and wasn't any fun then and this was even worse! So despite the great heat and all we get from it sure wasn't happy with that last nite plus hubby had to finish cleaning it this AM so had to keep the fire down low so was at 64 this AM so not bad since it was about 5o this AM here! now all is back to normal and we are going to some friends for a super bowl party a bit later on!
I have also updated the shop with a few bags of locks with some added goodies in there as well! More to come with the 3 day weekend next weekend! NOW to make it thru the long week ahead! At least will have the long weekend to look forward to! yippee!
