March 25th, 2020 — Let’s Go Fly a Kite! Propane Refill during Quarantine

The boys learned to fly kites today!! 💗🎉 And we got our propane tank refilled as well. Should be good for another 6+ months of heat (probably much longer as we enter the summer months), stovetop cooking, refrigerator power, hot water and electricity! ⚡️#1000gallontank #offgrid #prepared

We had no idea our propane guy would be coming today. But he came just in time. Times are crazy with all this COVID talk in the news. Feels amazing to be prepared for anything!


  • Jessica Kish We are too.
  • Mark Bore I think we had a 1000 gallon tank when we lived on the farm. That ran hot water and the stove. Had a coal furnace for heat, and a cistern for water. I think the water pump ran on propane also. We had electricity but frequent thunderstorms would knock it out so we had coal oil lamps for light when that happened.
    • Rachel McCash Cronin Mark Bore yes! We are propane everything—refrigerator, stove, hot water, furnace, generator, etc —all runs on propane. We love it!! So much better than gas powered living 💯💯💯
  • Marie Keene You have the best place for social distancing 💕
  • Kelli Robinson What a view!
  • Brook Nuttall The weather there must be crazy, because it seems like every other set of photos from your place, your place is covered in snow and then cleared of snow and then snow, etc.
    • Rachel McCash Cronin Brook Nuttall yes!!! It really is!! I think it’s just March/winter ending + transitioning to spring—we still get snow, hot days, crazy wind, etc. Can’t wait for true spring and summer!
