This might be the warmest day of the year so far. 20 F, sunny , no wind.
A real respite from the arctic cold we've been having.

6 deg C/42deg F, 23mph wind but it sounds more than that, heavy rain,

And my central heating is off - pilot light has gone out and won't relight despite spending 1/2 an hour fiddling with it and swearing at it when I got home tonight. Gas man coming tomorrow. I have a servicing contract so repair will be free. If I hadn't been on contract and an elderly lady living alone I'd have had to wait until MONDAY!!!! Currently wearing 3 woollen jumpers, thick tights, leggings, padded over-trousers and my sheepskin boots and I feel like the Michelin man.

My furnace works fine, even if it's puffing over-time. This old house is drafty like a spring breeze coming off the lake. In winter. WHY is it not like this in summer! I think I saw an old pair of leggings up in the attic that a friend knitted for me in the 70's- 80's. The kind that is worn for dance practice. I should dig those up and wear them. Moth holes or not. I have on a pair of cotton sox, woolen sox, long johns, jeans and wooly lined slippers. A t-shirt, flannel shirt, hoodie zipped up and my bath robe. I too am the Michelin Man.

10F no wind, the Ogre thermostat wars continue. Shrek turns it up and then turns on a fan because he is hot...

We haven't even had 7 inches total so far this winter! It's been really cold though. I don't doubt that the snow is coming. It's supposed to warm up over the weekend, into the 40s.

Down into the single digits again. It's only mid-January and I'm already tired of winter. Can't warm up tonight. Or I couldn't, until I helped myself to a bit of Himself's Bourbon. Now whether I'm warm or not, I just don't care. Not much of a spirits drinker...
