Like my brownhouse:
Monday, January 6 2014
It was unseasonably warm today with occasional rain, though in the afternoon temperatures fell into the 30s and continued a downward trend that would end at around 4 or 5 degrees Fahrenheit by tomorrow morning. The so-called "polar vortex" was on its way, pushing temperatures throughout the central and eastern United States (except for Florida) down to record lows.
Because Gretchen had to leave early for work, I took the dogs on a fairly long walk as soon as the rain stopped. Along the way, I gathered small pine twigs for kindling. As I was nearing home again on the Stick Trail, I added 70 pounds of firewood to the backpack I'd brought. [REDACTED]
