Does that phrase put a song in your head? I can think of a couple with it.
So we here in Nor Cal are being BLASTED with a wind/rain storm. I do love the wind, I really really love wind. It is just making me incredibly nervous though. I fear the power will go out.
I don’t mind the power being out generally because when we were growing up it would go out in the winter and we would light the many many oil lamps that my mom collected and we would put a pot of beans on the wood stove and it was kind of an adventure. When the power was out for a while during a snow storm once, I remember melting snow for water because we were on a well and no power meant no water… but I think fondly of those times.
My fear now is that if the power goes out at my house we will have water, but no heat. We have a pellet stove, that I love, but we are out of luck in a power outage. That would mean no hunkering down and enjoying a primitive life with no power, but packing up and heading to my brothers house, who has a wood stove. I guess that would be an adventure too, and probably fun, but in a big storm nothing beats holing up in your own house.
We are always toying with the idea of getting a generator, we’ll see if that happens. So for now I am enjoying the storm from my nice warm house, and thinking of baking something, because stormy weather calls for something hot from the oven doesn’t it?
