After installing the kerosene lantern on the porch yesterday, I found that I had no fuel for it, so today when I was at Lowes, I went looking for kerosene, and found a small container.
So tonight about dark, I lit it to see how it illuminates that end of the porch.
I think it casts a lovely glow. Nineteenth century technology has a lot going for it. Now, I need another lantern for the far end of the porch.
