It's 12 degrees here. I doubt if I will go out anywhere. I went to the grocery store yesterday so I have everything I need for a few days.

I have never been to Virginia, but I take it you aren't used to getting much snow.

Right, we get very little snow in this corner of the state - the ocean and the Chesapeake Bay moderate the temperatures. Secondary roads don't get plowed so it's dangerous to drive out there.

We're about 5C (9F) warmer than you. That's surprising. We're usually within 1 of Ottawa and Cornwall.

Well, that's different. It usually only feels warmer when it's hot and muggy.

Now it's up to 30F, clouded over, foggy and we might get a little snow. Still feels like 36F.

It's about in the 50's right now; heading for a freeze tonight, so gotta get out there and cover things up.

I have all the incandescent lights in the house on for some heat. I suppose I'd best buy a few more before they're gone. Yes, there's heating for the house, but it's not that cold. Yet.

Tea lights in jars work for heat too. The glass heats up and radiates the heat. Need a BBQ lighter or long stick matches to make lighting them easier. Close the doors to rooms you are not using so the heat stays central.

I'mm not going to tell you because everyone in the rest of the country will cry, and I don't want to hear it. I pay for this good weather!
