So I mentioned that it rained yesterday and is forecast to rain off and on today. Knew that.
So I wrapped the woodstove in a tarp and strapped the tarp down to protect the stove from blown water. I’ve had it for eight and a half years and it’s in perfect condition; no point inviting rust at this late date. Right?
Uh huh. I was putting my boots on for morning chicken chores when it suddenly dawned on me that the stove was only mostly covered. There were other bits, removed for weight reduction and then forgotten out in the open in front of God and everybody!
Okay. I always wanted to check this anyway. Starting with something important is kinda dumb, but here we are…
Sigh – we’re seriously putting that to the test this week, brethren and sistren.
