The season of nightly wood stove heating began a couple weeks ago for us. It's been dry around here, just cold. I had forgotten to put water on top of the wood stove, and my eyes were dry in the morning and a bit of coughing.
So last night I remembered, since I wanted some hot water to wash my dirty face. Using the sink wastes too much water waiting for the LP water heater to send it over just for a quick shot, and the cold water is, well, cold. So, I was able to wash up, and this morning no dry eyes or cough. Much better!
