A New Hampshire friend gearing up to deal with the Nor’easter forecasted to arrive tomorrow sent us an email. He thought that maybe having spent two months in a warmer climate was having a negative effect on our weather.
Not likely. If we could influence the weather at all, it would be 70 and sunny throughout New England. 🙂

If the power goes out, there is no heat – furnace or pellet stove (needs electricity for starter, igniter and blower.) Bring on the quilts.
A couple of years back, we had the power boxes torn right off the house twice and had the privilege of paying $$$$ to have them replaced. Then they decided to grant us a power pole in our side front yard that keeps the lines higher especially during serious storms. We named that beautiful pole, Steve. So, tomorrow I’ll be checking out the window to see that Steve is standing tall and holding those lines because that means even if the power goes out we’ll be back on line in a normal time sequence and not 7-10 days later. I love Steve.
Thanks, Dan, for letting me borrow the title. 🙂
