51% humidity inside is high. Mmost folks who have humidifiers on their furnaces keep them set 30-35%.

From what it says on my barometer on my wall it is around 53 percent in here and we have no condensation on our windows. We have a humidifier on our furnace but haven't used it for years because it causes too much condensation. I googled and it said that indoor humidity should be between 30 and 50. Who knows how reliable this thing is on the wall?

My one storm door is always condensated, but it's because it's cold outside and warm inside. If you don't have double-pane windows you could get condensation, too.

It's up to Minus 6 at mid-day. It's aiming for 2 above. No going out today.

Birthday? We missed your birthday Katy? You should have let us know - we could have baked you a virtual cake. Bonus: NO calories!

Looks like lots of us are donning thermals to keep warm. We're around the freezing mark but it's that damp cold that penetrates. At least the sun peeked out today so it looked nice.

Glad to see both Katie H and texasgirl have power. Stay warm and snuggly ladies!

I'm not one for making a fanfare about it CG.

But I am a Brit, so therefore very interested in weather!

We're at around freezing too, with that same humidity that crawls under your clothes, too bright sunshine, and a stiff, chilly breeze.

I know what you mean Taxy. It looks lovely, but it bites!
