Pac shared it earlier. I can't see too many videos due to stupid limited bandwith courtesy my lovely Verizon network.

Those are really cool! Love the one that looks like a kid's building component! Our kids had something that had tubular connectors.

We are getting a lull between freezing rain episodes. As long as the power stays on it can do its thing outside. No where to go Saturday but my chair. Meanwhile, I hope Katie and texasgirl both still have electricity...

Clear -2
feels like -29

I have the heat turned up to 80F and can't get the temp in here over 66F, thanks for warm socks, lots of blankets and the space heater in the bathroom. I may need to plastic seal the windows, lots of cold coming in from there.

Our little stripper says it's 29 degrees outside and 66 inside, but our thermostat control for the furnace it says 68. I am comfortable in shorts and a tee shirt with no shoes or socks on.

We only got about 2 inches of snow but we got a lot of freezing rain and little ice balls before it turned to snow. No more precipitation predicted for the rest of the day.

Now that I moved the stripper over to my computer desk, about 3 ft away from his end table, the indoor temp went up to 69. I think his table is much closer to the outside wall. Either that or I'm just radiating a lot of heat! LOL

26F here. Just barely a dusting of snow, but my driveway is slippery because of the moisture that froze on it. The winds are calm, which means they will probably pick up some.

Weird Weather

I just don't get the latest weather.

Yesterday, it got over 80 inside my apartment. Last evening, a north wind started blowing hard directly through the open windows and I had to turn the heat on. Later, I needed to run the a/c.

This morning, I awoke to find my picture window all blurry. Yes, the condensation is on the inside, yet my humidity meter says it's at 51% which is a healthy, comfortable level??????

What's up with this?
