It’s another cloudy morning here in Port Loring. We did see a touch of sunshine yesterday, but that was about it. A touch. We also had a lot of heavy rain through the day. Today will be much the same as yesterday, other than we could see a few flakes of the white stuff. I won’t mention what it is really called, as I don’t want to encourage it too much. The temperature waking up was sitting at 4.3 C | 39.74 F. It will warm up a bit, but not much as the day moves forward. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning, which will make travelling pretty good.
On another note, we still aren’t burning any wood in our wood furnace yet. As if we did, the house would be too warm. So until it gets colder, we use our oil furnace. Speaking about heat sources. For the past five years, the Powers that Be have been trying to switch everyone over to gas and propane along with electricity. Now that they have done so, the price has almost doubled. It’s easy enough to say that they are doing this to save the environment, but that is the furthest thing from the truth as in all honesty, none of the other countries are doing anything … which cancels out anything we do. If anything, these other countries are producing more coal and things than they ever were. Unless everyone does their share, nothing will change. My opinion on the subject is we here in Canada should be looking at ways of making what we have, like gas and oil and coal, more efficient, so we can use them. There are ways, but some folks believe that their way is the only way, and work very hard at pushing it on others. We also need to be building more refineries here in Canada, so we can make our own gas and oil instead of relying on others, as we are doing now. If we did that, our country would be more self efficient, and we would be able to drop the price of our gas and oil down to half of what it is now, which would eliminate a lot of our problems we are having today. Improve what we have now, not do away with it. All that is happening by not using oil and gasoline is making other countries use more and get rich. They are laughing at us. Anyway, not sure how I got on that subject. Oh, ya, I mentioned that we haven’t turned on our wood furnace yet. Ha ha.
With that, I am off for a bowl of oatmeal with a piece of toast and then see what the day has in store. Stay safe, there is a lot of sickness going around these days. Might be more if these so-called Powers that Be keep raising the prices of things. No one will be able to eat or have a place to get out of the cold this winter. In all my years, I haven’t seen our world be in such despair.
In Closing I Would Like To Wish You Well!
