“Winter descended suddenly, with bone-chilling cold. The damp, raw wind swept in fem the ocean and entered through cracks in the walls of the hut. It made the fire flicker and hiss.”
Lois Lowry from Son (Giver Quartet, Book 4)
I started reading this series of books this past weekend and have been enthralled with them, reading every second I can find here and there. When I came across this quote yesterday morning I had to laugh. There I was warming myself in front of the wood stove at 5:30 am…
We were up early yesterday morning, the fire radio called about a fire alarm at 4:30 which ended up being a false alarm. It hailed once again an hour later for a car in a ditch. I was up early and it was cold. The outdoor thermometer read -9 and the indoor thermostat read 54 – BRRRRRR. Winter has truly arrived.
I’m thankful that our basement is filled with stacks of lots of dry wood, which we worked on cutting, splitting, and stacking two years ago. Our wood for the next year is already in stacks outdoors to dry this coming summer.
