This last weekend, our buddies all were talking about going down to the river.
I told everybody that it was way too cold, and everybody laughed at me.
They asked myself and others if I was going to let a little frigid weather get in the way of a good time. They were right, the people I was with and I didn’t have to just relax at the condo all day with the comfort of the oil furnace. But I also don’t like being out in the frigid weather for too long and it was like 40 degrees outside! I guess that’s nothing to some people, but I was raised in the West where the weather stays moderate all year round. Well, 1 neighbor said the people I was with and I could always pack a crucial tent and relax in there with some portable furnaces working. I immediately said that was a good method and asked if everybody had some portable furnaces the people I was with and I could use. Unluckyly, nobody had a portable heating system that didn’t need to be blocked in and it wasn’t like the people I was with and I had access to the electricity near the river, unless the people I was with and I used the car. Still, I didn’t want to drain the car battery while using a bunch of portable furnaces either. All of us ended up buying a nice propane heating system with some propane fuel. All of us got a pretty good deal on it too which was surprising. So the people I was with and I set up the tent and also another neighbor brought the charcoal grill so the people I was with and I could cook up some steaks. Another neighbor had a portable beatbox with a good playlist. It was actually actually relaxing being next to the river like that with our friends and it was perfectly moderate with the heating system working. I’m glad the people I was with and I were able to care about being out there despite the frigid weather.
