  • It seems we are in the middle of yet another “situation,” as my husband calls it, served up by Mother Nature.  At present, we are right in the middle of the mess out at the farm.  No electricity, no phone line, no heat and no water. 

    We can manage well enough inside with the fireplace, kerosene heater, camp stove, down comforter and strategic water rationing (with supplements brought in from town).  Outside is a different story. 

    The ice storm and snow have left a path of downed trees and limbs.
