My wife and I decided to go camping. We packed up the dogs and shoved everything into the car. We packed the tent, lanterns, and a few other items. The weather forecast was calling for sunny skies and cool evenings. We had plenty of warm blankets and sleeping bags. We also brought hooded sweatshirts, warm socks, and a small space heater. The space heater was for emergency use only. The space heater uses eight large batteries, and they only last for 24 hours. It can be very expensive to run the space heater, for more than a few hours. My wife and I were not very worried, because the weather forecast was optimistic. Even before we left on our voyage, the weather forecast still said sunny skies and cool evenings. By the time my wife and I drove over the mountain, the weather drastically changed. It became much colder, and the sun disappeared behind the clouds. My wife and I debated returning home, but we were up for an adventure. We continued on our journey, until reaching our final destination. After the tent was erected, we built a small fire in the ring. Everything was warm and cozy, even after the sun was finally set. By the time we were ready for sleep, the outdoor temperatures were starting to get cold. We turned on the space heater for a few hours. By the time we fell asleep, the tent was comfortable. My wife set an alarm, and we turned off the space heater after midnight. We slept well until the morning.
