I can't imagine using an outhouse in the winter, but my mother did. How spoiled we are.God bless and keep you,PolyKahr
I can relate to the last one, having lived in an unplumbed cabin in the Adirondacks for a few years a couple of times. Brr.......
They still have them here - you can see some in back of the older farm houses.
PolyKahr, we spent a lot of time on my grandparents' farm when I was a boy. No plumbing, and choices were either a chamber pot if the weather was really nasty, or the outhouse. I've used both. Not as pleasant in the winter, but the worst part was stepping in fresh cow pies on the way to the outhouse, in the dark.threecollie, yes indeed. Brr is right!Chickenmom, understood. Most cabins here have them as well, as there's no plumbing to be had in the Bush.
Oh, yes. But I refused to use the outhouse because it had huge wolf spiders in it. It was chamber pot or woods for me.
PH, I understand that. Grandpa's outhouse had spiders, mud daubers & yellowjackets in the summer. Using it in the winter was rather nice, by comparison.
Off topic, but I sure was wishing you were still on FAcebook today. Local news channel was all excited about a moose hanging out in an area cow pasture. They shared photos of people hugging it.
threecollie, that's cool. You should right-click & save that photo, and put it on your blog. :)
