Weather Woes (Current Events) Feb. 2021
What a February! I am in southwest Mo. and this has been a record breaking winter storm for us here. I did Ok. I did have some frozen pipes one morning but they thawed without bursting. My wood stove went wacky but it turns out I just need a new door gasket, which is on it's way. I do have electric backup and some how my area did not have any power down situations. Yet. So far chickens, dogs, cat and myself are all alive and well. My oldest granddaughter came and spent the whole storm with me as the family was afraid I would get outside, fall and freeze before help could get here. That actually could happen. I did discover some of the things that need improvement the main one being I need a reliable non-electric backup source of heat. I am thinking propane. I have never used it, any tips or suggestions on units? Or any other experiences on dealing with exceptional weather?
