Winter is coming to Kabul. The mornings and evenings are already in the 40’s. We have three sources of heat for the winter. In our living room, we are using a large wood stove. These have only been around for two years. A company in Mazar-e-Sharif makes them. It burns wood and is very efficient. In the mornings we will use our Bukuree-Bureeora stove. This burns hand packed saw dust. We take a bucket, cut a hole in the bottom, insert a pipe and pack sawdust around it. Then we remove the pipe and there is a nice tunnel through the sawdust. My stove will burn about 6 hours. We use this stove in our dining/kitchen. Finally in the bathroom I have a kerosene heater. I can light it and turn it off easily in the mornings. Everyone expects it to be a cold winter this year. Please pray for those who don’t have a lot of energy resources.
