Yeah, we had quite a lot of snow.

And I am not generator qualified.

Plan B: Wood-stove.

Thank goodness for the wood-stove.

Most everything I’ve done indoors for the last two days has been in close proximity to the wood-stove.

What do you do when there is no power for two days?

If you are a pampered critter, you nap

I continued work on refining my post-apocolyptic skill set:

All the while wishing I wasn’t doing it by the light of a headlamp!
