-"Got this email from my brother (Dick) sharing an experience he had the other day, with the temperature hovering around 32+oC. He and his wife live in their country home, just northeast of Pinawa, Manitoba and continues even today, to heat his home with a fireplace:
Not much exciting going on here... We are following Public Health orders and chatting with our neighbours, each from our sides of our property line. Most exciting event to report is my annual firewood delivery of two cords of Oak. Was stacking them in the woodshed an hour at a time. First time I’ve bought Oak. That wood is VERY Heavy. Was resting from 20 wheelbarrows of firewood, when suddenly I see my neighbours Greg and Tracey coming to join me in the project! In less than an hour, it was completed!
Now that’s what I call “Manitoba Friendly”!"
