Bart at Advanced Chimney was supposed to install our woodburning stove today but he's got the flu(e).

*Tepid laughter from the audience*

So we're rescheduled for next Monday. But the propane people came and installed the converters for our range, so at least that's up and running. I got our lights, switches and outlets (mostly) working in the basement, which is nice:

I know it's cold everywhere right now, but it was REALLY cold in the house last night. Lost power with all the wind, and I hadn't really gotten the house warmed up at all when it happened, so I went to bed in my sweats, a sweatshirt, a hat and two comforters, and temperature somewhere in the 40s in the bedroom...

The aptly named Blue Ridge in the distance on my drive home:
