Living in the country has it’s pros and cons. (Heck, where I live many people wouldn’t even call it ‘the country’.) One of the ‘cons’ was most noticeable this past week during one of our winter wind storms. We were with out power for a few days. We conserved water (no power not well pump) and made sure the wood stove was lit. This happened twice this past week since we were hit by back to back storms. Not big a problem for us but I’m pretty sure my coworkers were happy when I had access to hot showers again! We chose to look at all the ‘pros’ of living a bit out of the way. The biggest blessing for me would be the beauty that surrounds us. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy our morning dog walks. It’s hard to believe that we are so lucky to live in such an incredible place.
