This is my mobile home here in the great Pacific Northwest. I don't know if you can tell, but it was actually snowing very hard when I took this picture. The "pipe" looking thing on the roof to the left is from my handy dandy wood stove. So...no matter how cold it gets.. the house is always toasty warm. Another way to beat the heat in the summer...get out those Christmas CD's or cassettes and play them full blast as you drive around town. I love to pull up to a stop light with "Joy to the World" playing very loud, in the middle of July.
Try it sometime....Linda
thanks John for helping us remember Old Man Winter.
