Amish Cook 12-25

By: Lovina Eicher

Nice and sunny but cold day.  After a few cloudy days we welcome the sun even more. When our batteries on our solar-powered freezer start blinking low we are even more happy to see the sun.  It seems like one sunny day always recharges it for awhile. We are still glad we invested in the solar-powered freezer. Since having it installed we haven't had to pay a cent to keep it going.  With the propane prices high it is good to not be buying for the freezer yet. Our refrigerator, stove, lights,  and water heater run off of propane. Also our water is powered by a propane motor. Last week we had a problem with the motor not kicking in when the water supply in the house was low. Susan and I wanted to do the laundry and there wasn’t any water. We decided to see if we could start it manually and it worked until the next time.
