    500 years ago there was no family without burning wood. Some people use electricity for heating nowadays. When there is no electricity they have no heating.
    Go ahead, giggle.

    You are freaking out about weather which is the NORM. I can't tell you, and many US posters as well, how many times the things you are worried about happens in the US. Ice happens. People lose power, power is replaced. As a teen I lost power for over two weeks during and after the Blizzard of 1996, which followed cold temps and major flooding. Lost power for 5 days during Christmas week in 2004 and temps fell to -17 Fahrenhiet, didn't have a chimney or anything like that. Like I said I'll giggle.

    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken
