The wind kicked up last night- HOWLING wind.
RIP ROARING, GALE FORCE winds.
And round about the time the wind started to become noticable, I started to smell gas.
Not "Oh, man, what did you eat?!" gas,
But natural gas.
We have, in the great room/ kitchen a natural gas fireplace, and a gas stove/oven.
For some reason I was connecting the smell with the fireplace, and wondered if the wind was doing a back draft kind of thing;
We ended up not worrying about it too much.
In the middle of the night I woke up, and thought the smell in that room was a little stronger, so I opened a couple of windows a bit, including our bedroom window.
The smell was still there this morning.
I opened the windows a little more.
Then I went about lining a cookie sheet with foil and opening the bacon I'd taken from the freezer before bed.
When I went to put the bacon in the oven (a great way to cook a pound of bacon) I realized the oven was still on...
I made peroghies for supper, and when the first panful were fried I put them on a plate in the oven, which I set to "warm".
I forgot to turn it off...
I suppose that could have caused, over the course of an evening, the kitchen to smell increasingly like gas...
At least the house is getting a good airing out.
And at least it's still freakishly warm enough to even have the windows open...
