I used to love it when the power went out. Well, I still love it, but only in the warm weather since in winter, even though I can cook still cook (gas) and bundle up against the cold, loss of heat is life threatening to the iguana. It’s frightening to watch him turn black with the cold.
I find it outrageous that they build houses in this climate without fireplaces or wood burning stoves as an alternate heat source. I find it just dumb that we bought a house without a fireplace, but there’s nothing to be done about it now I suppose. Except maybe figure out how to get a small wood stove set up somewhere in this little house.
At least I have a hot water bottle to try and keep the poor lizard from dying.
