  1. 5 degrees, sun and wind gusts to 55mph brrr…. blizzard warning until 6pm good thing we didn’t get much snow 🙂

    1. 14 degrees, no sun, wind the same as you, and enough snow to not be able to see much more than 100 feet.
      Re-bricking around the wood stove, and installing a second wood stove. Bricks/rocks stay warm long after the fire goes down while asleep.
      Hot rocks are your friend.

      1. awesome on the second wood stove
        got my off grid toilet set up 🙂 off grid =power outage haha
        next project >>> make a rocket stove

        1. Rocket stoves are nice.
          Make sure there are good access points for cleaning. That was a problem for me. The next one I build will have a removable lid on the barrel. Also from time to time there was a back smoke issue depending on the wind. Never quite figured it out. Maybe it was the design.

  2. The Kennedy Center allotment, along with the allotments to other artsy enterprises, is their Bread and Circuses. They keep us entertained while they kill us. Not to mention how rich the Kennedy’s are.

    Divine right of Senators just around the corner. Henry covered that so well today.
