The second night The second night

Our front yard looked like this …

30 centimeters of snow dug out three times 30 centimeters of snow dug out three times

Kerosene heater – with supper in the pot on top – light and warmth Kerosene heater – with supper in the pot on top – light and warmth

I love Winter!
