Happy New Year
Last year, I wrote in my blog that it was really cold and clear. Today is the second day of the new year and like last year, it was -8 degrees out. I went out to the garage this morning and filled our kerosene heater and brought it in. As I lit it I could smell the kerosene and it reminded me of my childhood and the many places I have been where it was in use. The house we lease uses No.2 fuel oil and it also has a fireplace. Even at three dollars a gallon, kerosene provides a nice alternative on a cold morning.
