Last Wintertide feels almost care about a sort of fever dream. My wife plus I moved up here to look after her Dad at the end stages of her life. The people I was with and I have lived in the land of the heat pump, sunshine plus yellow skied winters for the past 30 years. The people I was with and I actually tried to get her Dad to come down south with us for the past decade. But she just wouldn’t budge. So as she nears the end plus needs near constant care, every one of us chose to transfer up here. This isn’t a permanent situation plus our wife plus I are still working however are doing so remotely. The people I was with and I found a small home near her Dad for us to live in. The little home even came with a modern gas gas furnace. And given the fact that I had zero experience with a rugged winter, I thought a modern gas gas furnace would be great. Still, I was so utterly unprepared for what a serious northern Wintertide actually had in store. It’s care about the thermostat didn’t have enough digits on it for heating the house. And the gas gas furnace seemed to run all the time however I was still cold in the house. Come to find out, that had everything to do with the home itself. I had not prepared it for winter. But then again, I didn’t recognize any better. I do now plus I got with it this year in order to have a much cozier Wintertide with far less high-priced heating bills. I spent a few weekends actually making sure the home is super slim plus well insulated. So while I’m not looking forward to all the cold, I’m not near as afraid of it as I might have been had I not l received how to prep the home for winter.
