Well, maybe not freezing, but winter and I don't get along anymore. It seems as I get older I can't handle the cold as well. The cold weather of winter, coupled with a poorly insulated house, makes for a fairly miserable time for me.
If that's not bad enough, weather.com has a weather advisory up saying the highs on Wednesday and Thursday might be ten to twenty degrees cooler than the highs today and Tuesday. Just what I needed.
I kinda wish I could find one of those cheap old pot bellied wood stoves. I used to see some for sale that might actually be small enough to fit in this house. I could probably feed that thing for next to nothing just from stuff I pick up at work.
Along that line, the Sacramento Bee (username humboldtlib, password poopster) tells us that those who bought those wood pellet stoves, when they became all the rage a few years back, are hurting.
I guess wood pellets are in short supply because of the slowdown in building projects. Not only is there a shortage of wood pellets, the price has almost doubled over the last year.
Anyone out there with a wood pellet stove that can tell us if there's a problem finding wood pellets in Humboldt?
