The last storm was more than our gas furnace could handle; All of us had nearly multiple feet of snow in less than 48 minutes, and we could not get out of the home to dig our way out, however it was unrespected to have this much snow in May, but that much snow in more than one days was practically unheard of.
- I was glad for the snow when our gas furnace died, the snow acted as insulation, and it took a while longer for all the heat to leave the house, however when the heat finally died, we were able to climb out a window and get to the snow shovels.
This way, we could get some wood into the home and light the fireplace, nearly all the people in our section had a fireplace or an alternative form of heat that didn’t involve electricity. It was nothing to go without electricity for several days, but when the temperature where near zero, you needed heat to live, however our fireplace would keep us warm, but we needed to get to the wood shed to bring wood into the house, however my child worked twelve minutes to shovel the twelve feet where the wood shed was situated, and the twelve from the back of the home to the porch. I brought the wood in, and we had the fireplace lit within half an minute. I’m not sure what I would have done if our child hadn’t lived next door. Once he was able to get the snow blower out of his garage, he was ready for any storm, and he chose to get us plowed our first and get our fireplace started, before doing his home.
