Monday's News-Our weekend update....

Still under the weather a bit. This virus has got me down. I think this is the longest I have had a Head cold.
Saturday it Snowed all day.We ended up with about 10 inches of snow, we weren't suppose to have much about 2 inches. I'm starting to not listen to those weathermen anymore. They tend to get it wrong. It snows when they say it won't hit us and when we are expecting it, we don't see it. The snow was nice though. My Dad in Chesapeake, near Virginia beach, got a lot of snow. They seldom see that much.
Sunday we went to Pennsylvania to go Tubing and snowshoeing. Well there was no snow! Only the Man made kind and that wasn't very good. Daughter went Tubing with her friends, wasn't that great. Hubby and I hung out in the lodge, No snow to go Snowshoeing. For three hours we just People watched. Saw some great boots and strange clothing. Saw a hat I loved, need to find one, think it would look nice on me. There were all kinds of folks there, different nationalities and sizes. People watching can be a great pastime. We talked about stuff and just drank Hot chocolate. Took some photos, I'll post them on Wednesday.
One things of importance that happened this weekend was, hubby pick up some new wood Pellets for the stove on Friday. The Brand is "Freedom Fuel" out of North Carolina. Our Pellet Stove is not conducive to it. The burn is okay but the pellets do not burn down causing them to cake in the grate. Therefore I have to clean the grate out every six hours. In the morning after about 8 hours the grate in filled and burning and there are some smaller fires in the box. I have to turn off the stove and clean out the grate. What a hassle, we need not buy these anymore. Today we will go out to get our old brands, they are mostly from the Northern States. The burn is good and I only have to clean the stove every other day. No build up in the grate and no fires in the box. The Brands do make a difference in the burn and care of the Pellet Stove.

    I hope you feel better. Several people are trying to get us to buy a pellet stove. I can't decide.
