Day 332

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,

Some say in ice.

From what I’ve tasted of desire

I hold with those who favor fire.

But if it had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate

To say that for destruction ice

Is also great

And would suffice.


-Robert Frost



Electricity was on yesterday and last night. I don't trust that it will stay on but at least for a day it is alive and I have heat and the well pumps water. The worst of the cold has passed. Today I find the broken pipes.

They do not hide. They let their presence be known. The sound and a fury of plumbing expense.
