Its cold today? Does -7F (-22C) count as cold? That's how cold it was this morning at 6AM. It's +17F right now at 5 PM, and I did see +20 earlier this afternoon. Unfortunately it's all downhill until Sunday when it might get above freezing for the first time in 12 days.

The snow from Christmas day is still here, with more piled on top of it. Had to get out the snow blower to find my driveway when I came home from a road trip on Sunday.

Tubes have been glowing in the basement for warmth....and LOUDNESS!

It's a comparatively warm 18F here in Cleveland (with light snow.)

Did have a bit of a scare when the drains in the bathroom over the garage wouldn't clear. Tub full of hot water seems to have remedied the issue for now, but we are expecting a high of 5F tomorrow and 6F on Sunday.

My max/min thermometer on north side of the barn showed -10F for the last week (but I haven't check it over the last few days so it could be lower). Basically, IT'S COLD HERE!!! Warmer today (up to 25F) but tomorrow 12" snow predicted and both the kids schools and my wife's are cancelled already. That NEVER happened when I was a kid (when I was a kid we had to walk both ways to and from school, uphill both ways in snowstorms in the spring and fall...).

A friendly reminder at -30 F exposed human flesh freezes solid in 30 seconds. Not a good idea to quickly run out to start your car to allow it to warm up in just your indoor clothes. From experience even small patches of frost bite are painful.

I have been pleased to see my hot water heater which doubles as the furnace has managed to keep my house at 70 F. Apparently insulation works!

My sympathies to folks who are suffering. But please don't use an unrated supplemental heater. I have been to the aftermath of a fire where the fire captain was upset. He really didn't like loosing folks. So stay warm stay safe.

Agreed, but truth be told, I run out to warm up the cars for trips to school every morning in my indoor clothes and never feel the slightest worry about exposed skin. I must be channeling George!

I don't mean to minimize the concern, but my experience tells me there's more to those figures than meets the eye. That said, I deem myself unaccountable for anyone who follows my ideas above...

BTW, it's 8F now at 11:30pm in Dover NH...

Humidity plays a major role in temperature perception.
