Is it spelled or spelt correctly? Beautiful vista, whatever. Must be cold in winter, being so exposed?

David, it gets to an average of about 20 degrees here in winter with dips lower into teens and at times single digets. Sometimes bad snowstorms and sometimes icestorms. We experience power outages at times in winter but we have a wood burning stove, oil lamps, large food pantry and other emergency goods. Our property is surrounded by 25 acres of woods so we are quite nicely protected from winds. Most property around us, however, is open farmland, so yes, it is wide open to wind exposure.
Cheers...Donna 😊

Couldn't resist!!!!😆

Spelled vs. spelt
In American English, spelt primarily refers to the hardy wheat grown mostly in Europe, and the verb spell makes spelled in the past tense and as a past participle. In all other main varieties of English, spelt and spelled both work as the past tense and past participle of spell, at least where spell means to form words letter by letter or (with out) to make clear. Outside the U.S., the two forms are interchangeable in these uses, and both are common.

But when spell carries the sense to temporarily relieve (someone) from work, spelled is the preferred form throughout the English-speaking world. This is a minor point, though, as this sense of spell is rarely used outside the U.S., where it is most common.

Spelled is not a recent Americanism, as many people assume (including some who have commented on this post). Both spelled and spelt are old, and examples of each are easily found in historical Google Books searches covering the 17th and 18th centuries. It is true, however, that spelt was ascendant everywhere through most of the 19th century. This ended when Americans permanently settled on spelled around 1900.
