Thanks for your story giving an insight of your daily lives.
It is lovely to hear of how other people spend their lives.
I fear I would never be able to live in a climate so cold, oh wow just think of angina pains when I stepped out in it. No thank you.
I would love to see you in Summer though.

Our water pipes froze twice, as did our sewer pipe. The air in the tires
compressed with cold, flattening the tires, the freezing them in that shape
with two corners where they lay on the ground. "Square tires". Of course,

And then last week the cold spell broke, and we had a high of over freezing.
A difference of a low of -35 to a high of +35 in TWO days. 70 degrees. The
equivalent of below freezing to 100 degrees!
So we had to take care of our freezer and make sure to get everything put
away. You see, in the dead of winter we just put our frozen groceries in a
wooden box on the back porch instead of across the yard in the deep freeze
in the garage.
We took two of the fillets of salmon we dip netted last July and cut them up
for "greasy fish". I have no skill with frying, but Pete does an excellent
