OK, I went to bed last night with a small fire burning in the wood stove. It was very warm in the cabin, so warm, I didn't need a blanket at all. For some reason it bothered me enough to get up and walk outside to check the temperature. Yikes! 38 degrees and here it is November. Came back inside and layed down again and thought to myself, I'm saving wood. Normally I wake up a couple of times during the night to stir the embers and add a couple of sticks of wood to keep it warm through the night. Not last night, slept right through until 7:15 this morning. When I woke up, the stove went cold and it was still warm inside. It was still a bit dark, I made my coffee and listened to radio for awhile.
At first light, went out and checked the temperature again, I couldn't believe it
In case you are wondering, yes, those are raindrops on the thermometer, it must have rained during the night sometime as the ground was wet this morning.
Except for this picture, this is the only indication that Winter may be here.
Otherwise, you would think it's early Fall by these morning photos.
OK you lower 48'ers, we demand our Winter back, lol.
This is nuts, here we are approaching mid November and no snow. This poses a problem for people who live remote traveling out and back to their cabins. No snow for snowmachines or dogsleds and even if some of the lakes are frozen or partially frozen, planes can't land or take off on them. Which is why living remote, you have to make sure you had gotten enough supplies to last at least 6 months.
So, here I am writing as I sit at my table looking out at the blue sky with the sun shining bright and beautiful clouds passing by. It is kind of kool. Watching Youtube is a whole lot better than using my phone.
By the way, last week I forgot to mention that a friend had given me a snowmachine along with a cover and brand new windshield that isn't running and another friend used her trailer to take it to my cabin. They both are people who follow my Blog so, I'm not sure I can give their names out because, I didn't ask for permission. I want to thank them immensely, it is a very kind gesture.
So, that's it pretty much for the time being. Take care
