The Verge of Anti-Fall

Yes, we are on the verge of a warming spell, who knows how long it will last, but I will take the not-so-cold weather no matter how briefly it stays.

I, for one, have had enough of being bitterly cold for one winter, and perhaps for the ones to come as well. 

I am not done my Grand Savings Plan, as I am only (currently) at 18.2% complete and it looks as though I won’t be to move on to the next phase of my life until April of 2023.

That is three full years from now, and three more winters in Wanda on these cold Prairie streets. 

For the most part, I get buy okay, it is just these really cold snaps that I hate. This is because it is when they daytime highs are below -20C that my lifestyle is really adversely affected.

My furnace has a hard time to heat the place up when it is that cold and the best I can seem to do is get it near zero with the furnace running full tilt.

My electric heater does a better job but that means I need to run my generator but it can get the place nice and balmy. 

Again, either choice means using more resources and yes costing me more. I will, however explore this as . . . I hate being cold. 

I am much more a: shorts, sandles and a loose shirt kinda guy with a light breeze blowing through Wanda. 

Oh yeah, that’s nice, that’s what I like. I endure the cold, I don’t frolic in it. 

So, I will spend a bit more resources next cold snap to make things nicer and warm(er).

Moving out of Wanda, even temporarily, is out of the question due to a promise I made to myself. Renting a spot at a local Year Round Campground is stupidly expensive. 

So, a bit more generator fuel and propane is a cheaper option to make my Wanda a bit more liveable in the cold months. 

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!
