We've had an ice storm here for the last few days. Slicker than anything. I have plenty of wood now and food so staying inside, except for ice skating to the outhouse. Whew.  ^_^

Still snowed in. :( The neighbor who was taking me out to the store now has her truck in the shop, so I'm really stuck. sigh  My car is entombed in lots of snow and ice. Probably be March before I can get it dug out. Longer if it snows much more. I'm tired of winter.

As for ice skating to the outhouse... I can't imagine. At my age, I don't always make it to the nice potty in the indoors bathroom. Thank goodness for the indoor washing machine and dryer. When it is really cold, I often "don't make it." LOL

"Primitive Living" keeps you young ML or kills you quicker.  :rolleyes:

Glad you have the luxuries you do!

Given the average lifespan of most "primitive" people, I don't think so. :) In any case, it's too late to go primitive at my age, and I don't believe that running water and indoor plumbing are "luxuries." But each to his/her own, of course.

This, I think.

I remember the time my first husband and I went camping... first time camping for me. The tent collapsed early in the evening as I was dressing for bed..( very exciting!), and I was escorted from the outhouse to the tent by a bear in the middle of the night. I survived... but just barely. LOL

What happens if you break a leg? Ice skating to the loo will take on a whole new dimension then. :)

I have a "back up" bucket with a fancy seat and lid. Plum uptown.

I do wish I had a pard here to drag me inside if its winter. I can see a time coming when I might reconsider my Daughters standing offer to a spare room but it's in the suburbs of a big city.  :thumbsdown: I would prefer to have a granddaughter move here. I would move out and live in a tent again, if one would.

I'd like that too. Unfortunately, both sons will likely remain in So. Calif. As a simple alternative, I carry a tiny burner cell phone with several people in the speed dial list. All neighbors who are willing to come help me if I get sick or fall down. I used to fall a lot, and then had no way to get help. Was terrifying. Now, several of the neighbors call me from time to time just to check up on me. :)

Winter finally hit last week - down into upper '20's in outlying areas.  We might have hit a low just slightly above freezing.  Had to turn on (electric) oven and put fan beside it to circulate air ... all that so I can say I didn't turn on the (central) heat this winter!

Up to 17 degrees now at 3:45AM. Going for a high of 36. I hope my neighbor can come dig out the car. I really need to go to the store!

3 PM
YAY! My neighbor came, dug out the car and plowed the driveway. I went to town and got the groceries I needed. I'm a happy camper. :)

The snow from the last storm is all melted now and there is green coming up everywhere. :) Temp now at 3:30 AM is 32. The air outside is incredible with the scents of spring. It just might happen! :)

Well, I find myself in sunny Oklahoma for the next two weeks, job training,

high today was 82, with clear sunny skies.

they have a wind warning out, seams that the wind got up to 30mph today, I just laugh at this.

next rain here will be Saturday.

Nice and warm, but not hot. No rain in some time here, but we had a tornado watch yesterday afternoon. A few really dark cloud masses, and it did rain out over the grasslands to the west, but nothing here. No tornado.
