Still up North
Yep, my lovely wife and I are still in the Great White North. We had a couple days of snowstorms. Then the temperature dropped below zero and the winds picked up. Mosquitoes are down to a bare minimum.
Are we going to travel this year? Sorta. Next week we are going to visit some of our friends in southern New Hampshire. It's not exactly a trip to Florida or Texas, but it gets us out of the house. We aren't sure if we'll go to Florida at all. Right now it's all about getting better and also avoiding the flu. So far, so good.
My lungs were injured back when I was a firefighter. When temperatures drop below 20 degrees or so, they really suffer. This year I've been using a RZ face mask when going out in the cold. It's really made a difference. Even though we've had a lot of bitterly cold weather, my lungs still feel pretty good. That's a huge difference from previous winters. It makes sticking around a lot more comfortable.
My lovely wife and I have been concentrating on catching up with the bills. We hope to be in a position to buy some sort of tow vehicle for the boat by spring. It doesn't have to be pretty.
Right now we are perfectly content to stick close to home. Of course, if the water line to the house freezes that could suddenly change our minds.
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.
