Have you got heat, Boom Boom? I recall you had a wood stove, if I'm not misremembering...
I have a generator but it's out of gas, and the one store that sells gas here has run out. Big storm coming tonight, 90 kph wind, -20C temps. Hope the ppwer comes on.
Yes, the house is warm - I burn wood. But without power for the furnace fan, I have to keep the fire low otherwise the furnace will burn up from overheating.
Do you have somewhere to seek shelter if it's too cold in the house? I'm worrying about you.
The situation is the same for everyone here. I have a good supply of wood, so I will never freeze. But I wish the store operator would check his gas supply more carefully - ridiculous to run out of gas in the winter! And the nearest supply is 44 km away by skidoo - our roads are closed all winter*.
*Next winter, with the opening of the bridge connecting us to the Quebec mainland, we might get the roads plowed. If so, it'll be easier to ensure a regular gas supply. We need gas for our generators.
Good to hear you won't freeze. And yes, your store operator was pretty careless - that sort of thing can leave people far too vulnerable when the weather gets bad. Ma Nature is a tough old bird.
Power is on!
We're projected to get 15 - 25 cm of snow Friday.
