========================================================

My father was a young man in his thirties when I remember the charcoal furnace in the
basement and his explaining about tending it on a cold night so it would not go out.
This photo reminds me that it is not just the young who need to tend the fires to
keep warm during cold days and nights.

I worked as a nurse with the elderly for many years … and one of the ladies
would complain of “cold in my connections”…finally figured out to be her
joints of her arms and legs.

—————————————————————————————-
(The ice storm of 1997 in New England was a storm of many days and people
were without heat, power for days and weeks, some up to a month.
Those with alternate heat, such as coal or wood, had a means to stay warm,
heat water, and cook food.)
