As a note for those of you who do photography, if you want a nice photo of the inside of your house lit by oil lantern and wood stove, A: Use a nice camera instead of a cell phone, and B: do it with proper lighting rig instead of in authentic lighting conditions. The photo Left demonstrates quite nicely why. The funny part is both of us were able to read in the lighting just fine. It just doesn't photograph well in the slightest. For those of you who can't tell what you're looking at, that's our living room with the Lady of the House holding an oil lantern standing near the wood stove with the Critter in the foreground.
Even some of the larger trees were leaning, and we had a lot of downed branches of various sizes around the property. Spring clean up is going to be all kinds of fun this year. At least we're going to have lots of wood for a mid summer bonfire, and kindling for next winter though.
