Return to the cold

The trip from Tucson home occupied the better part of a day. The flight from Minneapolis to Fargo was delayed a couple of hours by an emergency exit light which burnt out. As I left the plane, I said to the pilot--all that wait for an exit light, and we didn't even use it! He wasn't amused.

The woodpile I left behind to heat the new partially insulated house was down to about a half-a-dozen cobs of wood. I came home just in time. Between interruptions, my day was spent getting some wood together. I will saw again tomorrow, as we have quite a cold spell coming on.
