We have at last some really nice weather and the forecast for all of this week and part of next week seems to be ok. It is hard to believe that some states have received over 3 feet of snow, which is just more than we can even think about. All that is on the news is just about the weather up north and how many people are without electricity. Some of us around here would be totally lost without that, as most out and about the Bend depend on electric for just about everything, especially the pumps that supply our water. Of course there is always solar, but who around here have that? It might be a smart thing to get a wind-charger to back up our electric supply and then there are generators, but that would mean a big supply of gasoline in order to operate it. It is really something to think about!
