3/7/18. 2 huge snow storms. In 2012 I started stockpiling candles. Now they actually warm my small apartment a bit. The power went out last Fri. FIVE DAYS SO FAR! Anyway. I cooked a hot meal today. Black beans, rice, margarine, minced garlic, seasonings. Tasted awesome! I never thought I would use that little stove and Sterno.
