User Error (kerosene heater)

 Oh wow! Got woke up at about 2 am by the horrible strong smell of kerosene. It was below zero here wind chill so I had lit the heater yesterday morning. Hoping to just use it to get through the few days of frigid arctic blast. The smell scared me and I was tired so I turned it off. 

On waking up I did some googling and found out the reason it was starting to smell so bad of kerosene was because I had set it too low!! I am usually real good at using my heater. Have grown up around them and used them myself for the last 20 years. You have to find that happy medium on the Wick when you first set it. You can set it too high or too low. 

They really put out the heat so they are awesome when the wind chills fall. Just have to be safe with them. I have a huge kitchen and one part if just for the heater. Nothing sitting around it. 

Our local places that usually sell kerosene are out of it! Planning on this summer to buy it when ever I can to stockpile for next winter.

Prepared for Winter Storm.

I just went and got my Mr. Heater out of the shed. Getting ready for some bad winter weather coming our way. The news said to be ready for power outages. So, now I have my kerosene heater, Mr Buddy heater, candles, charged up my phone, and have blankets on the couch. It is so cold right now. But, I think that we are ready. 

Always be prepared for anything. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
