__Twenty four inches of snow, trees down, wires down, no power... thus, no heat, no internet, no cooking, no tea; two days. A ruffle feathered Blue-jay, nature is a wonderous life-form, is it not? __Now, we are 'Hotel-ing' it at a relative's home in another town, and as I said (my comment on the last post,)  "Crocuses... 'my wishful thinking'. "

snow falls
these over laden tree limbs

global warming --
nature's saucepans cooking
some more freezing snow ...

- all this angry stuff around us.

We live in an old house and we still have a stove to warm ourselves if the electric is out.

(Our main warming come from an Mitsubishi-inverter-warming-pump. It's quite cheap to use, as in our another house there is a classic oil powered central heating. It's quite expensive and we have a plan to change it to earth-warming-pump...

But those need electric, and if no electric - no warming?

Two years ago we visited my mother-in law and due to a storm no electric for many days. Saved her deep freeze with an inverter. (Freezer takes 100 watt only.)

Powered by tractor's bic accu... :-)

I have an inverted with my longer trips to use my laptop when no electric at all.
