The Blizzard of ’78 was the initial kick in the pants. When we built our house I wanted to have the option of wood heat. We heated solely with wood for 6 years then put in a propane boiler that gave hot water and baseboard heating on the first floor. Several years ago my wife expressed a nervous feeling about the future (as in SHTF) and asked what we could do. She’s since regretted that request. We’re good for several months if something happens. It could be better but available room and finances are constricting our options.
