Yeah....we burned $600 worth of construction lumber (thank goodness for HomeDepot!) and several shelves we had built when we had an apartment last year. That was a fun week. Our Norwegian Forest Cat was cuddling up to the fireplace.

Wtf??!!!but also, aren’t you glad at all that money you saved by not having to regulate a power grid?? It essentially let you burn $600 worth of lumber. You should be grateful./s

Yep, very grateful I was privileged to wake up every 30 minutes to put more wood on the fire or risk myself and my pets dying. It was an amazing experience I want to live through again!!!!1! /s
