Cold and damp, chance of rain. Friday was cold all day, and grey too. Not a nice day to be driving all over the place but better than pouring down rain…
I did make my pickups though. Among them, an inflatable stand up paddle board, and a “septic tank riser ring.” No idea what the septic tank part is, but it was cheap, it was the first septic tank part I’ve ever seen in the auctions, and I just bought property with a septic tank. Like the irrigation water pump, I figured that the way my life works, I should probably buy it when I see it. So I did. Got some double wall stove pipe too. That makes 3 or 4 stove pipe pieces so far, cap, pipe, heat exchanger box, and something else too. Again, my life works in a way that I felt like those things would be good to have. There is an outbuilding that I’d love to have a woodstove in for heat…
Today my non-prepping hobby has a repair class. I took it a couple of years ago, so this is a refresher, and a chance to get together with people. Meatspace baby.
Did not get to the store today. Did fill up the Ranger with gas. $3.20/gal at Shell. Not the cheapest store around, but wasn’t crazy expensive before this. Most of the signs I passed were $3.10/gal.
Lots of people aware of the world situation. Not many interested in going to Ukraine to fight .
The situation can change in a hurry. Keep your head on a swivel, and keep stacking.
