Is admitting you have a problem.Â My dad calls me a pyromaniac, and perhaps he’s right.Â
Â In early January, a freakishly big ice storm hit parts of Nebraska (thankfully not our part).Â Â If you want to see lots of pictures, go to here to see the rest.
People out there were with out power for over a week.Â Some towns are having central power lines put back up, other towns are running off of generators.Â People out in the country won’t have regular power restored for months!Â
Anyway, I started wondering what we would do if we were without heat for days.Â Sure, I’ve got the concrete blocks and tealights, but what about when those tealights burn out?Â Well -Â begin the experimenting with olive oil lamps!Â Did you know that olive oil has an extremely high burn temperature?Â If you knock over an olive oil lamp/candle (which I do not recommend trying), it will probably just put itself out.Â Here’s the link I found to try my own candle.Â
Here’s mine.Â How lovely!
