I just woke up from a winter afternoon nap, had a bit of a chill and fired up this kerosene heater. Last week's discussion of furnaces and woodstoves made me make sure it was tuned up, so it lit right up. Got fuel and a light? You've got 10,000 btus pumping in a couple minutes. I like that, not unlike how I admire a wood stove.

The price of kero! Whew! I need to go re-fill one of my five gallon jugs and that's closing in on twenty bucks.

But, it's going to hover around 0 again outside. I have to give a serious consideration to living on a boat where you can move south when it gets bitter like this. Brr. Nice, when it's cold, to light off a kero-lamp.
