Outside was 27 degrees and dropping when I last checked. It only dropped six degrees here in the house during the outage, so we were fine. Gave me a chance to try the little Sterno camp stove. It heated up my soup piping hot in no time!

Icicles are hanging off the deck furniture, chairs, power lines, trees (I'm keeping an eye on all our Leyland cypress trees, as the limbs are really bending low under the ice load).

Crossing my fingers that I will be able to make it to a local gun show that starts tomorrow. If not, Sunday is supposed to be much better weatherwise.

" There are those in America today who have come to depend absolutely on government for their security. And when government fails they seek to rectify that failure in the form of granting government more power. So, as government has failed to control crime and violence with the means given it by the Constitution, they seek to give it more power at the expense of the Constitution. But in doing so, in their willingness to give up their arms in the name of safety, they are really giving up their protection from what has always been the chief source of despotism — government.

Lord Acton said power corrupts. Surely then, if this is true, the more power we give the government the more corrupt it will become.

And if we give it the power to confiscate our arms we also give up the ultimate means to combat that corrupt power. In doing so we can only assure that we will eventually be totally subject to it.

When dictators come to power, the first thing they do is take away the people's weapons. It makes it so much easier for the secret police to operate, it makes it so much easier to force the will of the ruler upon the ruled."

Six degrees is a big drop in an indoor temp! Hot soup is helpful, but it's a good thing that your power was restored before it got any colder.

Ice can do so much damage, and icicles can be deadly.

"It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read,
or so incoherent that they cannot be understood: if they be repealed or revised before they are promulged,
or undergo such incessant changes, that no man who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow. "
