Another fun day
After a very cold night in which my water froze, I lit the big woodstove in the basement hoping it'd thaw out the lines. Since it's such a fuel hog a trip into town for more pressed sawdust fuel blocks was in order.
On the way into town the van died. The diesel fuel filter decided to plug up. The fuel filter on a E350 diesel van is a bear to remove at the best of times. It took over an hour on the side of the road to change it -in sub zero temperatures. At least I had a spare filter, so it could have been worse.
It took three tries to find a place that had some fuel bocks in stock. Then I had to stop at the auto parts store to replace the backup filter. By the time I got home the basement was starting to cool off again. The water wasn't flowing until 9:30 at night.
My plan was to pack up the van for travel, but that obviously didn't happen. My lovely wife was able to make some headway on her own. Now she's working her way though a backlog of dirty dishes.
The temperature is supposed to drop back down to -20. This cold weather is slowing down my efforts to go somewhere warm.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
