Low 20's in the morning and low to mid 30's for the high, which last about 1 hour before going back down.

The lowest temp I have seen so far was 11 degrees. Thank god for plug-in engine heaters.

We have had some snow so far, but nothing like last year. It's off the main roads, but the neighborhoods and shaded areas still have some icy spots.

We get inversions where the car smog gets trapped in the valley and the sun is hidden for days. It takes a big storm or strong winds to push it out.

Had to get the torch out today to thaw the latch rod on my gate to take the thrash out. I hit it last week with an 8 pound piece of stone for about 5 minutes and could not get it to budge. Cans were only about half full last week. After the 5 minutes, I was tired of freezing and said "f this, I've still got room in the cans" and went back in the house.

It was -31F here the other night, -50F if you factored in the windchill (wind makes a BIG difference)

"Heat is the absence of cold."
Actually, there is no such thing as cold, just the absence of heat.
I can build a basic fire on a "cold" nite, but I can't "make" cold on a hot nite. No, ACs don't make cold, they remove heat.

BUT, a couple of days of it isn't bad compared to the MONTHS of it some areas endure.


True. No worries about hurricanes blowing in here and swamping everything with MONTHS or YEARS of clean-up though.

Heh...when we moved to Charlotte in 1985, we asked our neighbors if we need to pay someone to plow our driveways in the winter (we had no idea how much it snowed). The guy looked like we had just teleported there from the Enterprise and said "Plow??? if more than one flake hits the ground, the entire city shuts down and grocery stores get emptied! Why plow if you don't leave your house?"

I knew I had found home at that point!

we have an outdoor wood boiler. Been eating a lot of firewood but keeping up with demand in the sub zero we have gotten. Added a heating unit to the attached garage this Fall. Been nice to step into a warm car for a change.

I went out to run the splitter, but seems it didn't like the temperature.

Sunday is suppose to be more temperate. Time to play catch-up on outdoor duties.
