|190 proof not sold in NYS. Why stay?|
That's what it would take to mend this broken heart. And, to lower the freezing point of our fresh water tank 18°F. I challenge you to prove me wrong. I have thrown down the mitten.
Thanks, Carolyn. Why mess around with 100 proof? Everclear isn't 100% ethanol, of course, but Magical Math takes care of that. If we were to do something so ridiculous and so right, our water would be approximately 65 proof.
So, we put incandescent lightbulbs in the bays instead. When it gets really cold, we'll screw them into something.
Q: How many fulltime RVers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
We discovered that our overachieving furnace is burning through about 3 gallons of propane a day trying to keep the Duck at 65°. Not necessary, Overachieving Furnace! Live a little and set your standards lower. This set off a ripple of panic in our household, since we're not set for another delivery for a week, and the people who sell propane and propane accessories were a little snippy about frequent deliveries. One of us decided to turn off the furnace entirely last night, and the other slept very well and warmly. It is to no one's advantage to discuss this further, especially not mine.
One of my oldest living friends emailed me last night to tell me to obscure our license plate in the blog. I'm pretty indifferent myself, but he guaranteed that making our license plate swirly would behoove me, so how could I refuse? This morning I'm stuck with the same old feet. I'm teasing you, dude, but I do appreciate the concern. I'm the living proof that you really can be too careful.
