Back to rewiring and insulating houses, this time my sister's top floor. 'Fraid that'll take me into the new year.

We had 15 degrees (F), and then a little rain. Now it is back to 60 with clear skies. Not bad for mid-Dec. Can't complain (but do most of the time anyway - wouldn't want to get out of practice.)

Around here we've been lucky if the house is that warm in the morning, had a little money trouble this year and can't afford heating oil, so we're using the wood heater, and it's mighty cold in here when that goes out at night (Not air tight)

Electric heaters help some but are murder on the electric bill.

And I'd better go put wood in the heater, Rick is helping our neighbour put his tent back up, and I'm designated fire tender.

Can you imagine a landlord who won't let a 61 year old man sleep in the house when there is 4 inches of snow on his semi-collapsed tent? The guy is a jerk!

Take Care All and Happy Holidays to each and every one of you out there, Hey Sharkey, that means you too, I hold no grudges!

Very, it's 6:35pm our time and Rick hasn't come in yet, so they must be working hard.

This poor old guy has a zillion chemical sensitivities or I'd put him up in the camper tonight.

It is freezing and the roads are getting slippery, I hope no one lands in my front garden, as it's down a steep bank.

I had someone drunk land in there before it was a garden :roll: and DO NOT want a repeat of that episode! :!:

We are having a fantastic winter so far. Still have roses blooming at the house. Small, stunted and not many of them, but still have a few. Amazing. Lows - in the 30's. Highs in the 50's. This little window of "Indian Summer" is one of the very few things that make it worth being here...for a couple months a year....spring storms is another.

Right after Christmas/New Years, I would be heading to the gulf coast in an ideal world.

Despite the snow there are roses out in this area, at the library in Mill Bay--that is about the mildest spot in the Cowichan Valley.

It was sunny here but is overcast now and my barometer is sinking again.

Rick and my neighbour got the tent back up, put a frame over it and covered the frame with a tarp. So my neighbour had a good sleep last night.

Looks like maybe more snow if the clouds get any thicker. No problem, I don't have to go out and the battery in my van is deader than a door nail.

Take Care Everyone and stay warm

Tent ripped in a non-critical area and they were able to cover it with a tarp and a PVC pipe frame.

I'm going to shift his landlord out of this town, never mind how, but I'll do it.

Take Care all, Merry Cristmas Steve.
