My home Province has been hit with storm after storm after storm.

With high winds also and major power outages.

The problem with the power outages – aside from the obvious – is that HEATING (for the most part) there is via electrical baseboards.

Think this person is going to get a good work out getting this car out huh !!

Not very many Folks have wood stoves anymore – perhaps more so in the more remote communities – and of course there’s my Brother who yes, still has his wood stove.  That’s a good thing ‘cause they still had heat and my Mother was able to go to their house to stay while her power was out.

With no power how is a person supposed to keep their beer cold ??  NL’ers are very resourceful !

Yup, Sure glad I’m HERE and not THERE !!  Soon enough I won’t have any choice but to endure those awful Winters – but while I still can I sure won’t be going through that !!

  3. WOW! When you don't RV anymore, you've got to get a little place with a wood stove in the living room, and a wood burning gas stove in the kitchen. That's what I would love again. Had those in the Sierras, and I never worried about storms. I wrapped up the pipes from the well to the house with blankets and pillows and I was totally fine. It was actually fun. Except now I'd also want solar panels on the roof and a Honda generator! :)

  7. Those pictures make our paltry 10" snow fall and 8 F temps. look like nothing. But I'm heading for FL in 10 days to begin full timing. I can't wait to start and get to warmer climes. Stay safe.
