So much for our Mediterranean climate. It is colder than a well digger's belt buckle in central California. I had a glass of Pepsi with ice in it with supper and 3 hours later the ice still hadn't melted. I left pork chops on the counter all day and they were still not thawed by supper. I've had the furnace on for 6 nights in a row. I am afraid my gas bill is going to triple to $24.00 this month.

Nothing better to wake up to freezing temps and a lot of winter wonderland frost. Brrrrr.

Made a cup of coffee this morning. It was ice cold within 10 minutes.
We've had the house heater on 24/7 to.Gas bill doesn't kill us it's the electric bill that does.PG&E has been adding an extra sur charge to our bill since March.They say were using more electricity that other homes in our neighborhood.

When I went to bed last night at a bit past midnight, it was 6° F. Right now at about noon, it's 33°. This is forecast as the warmest day in the next 5.

I had to close the bedroom window last night. Guess I better get going if today will be the warmest for the next week.

It is 80 degrees in Houston, where I am, but it is 37 in Dallas, where I live. That front is supposed to come through Houston tonight, but won't be quite as cold when it gets here.

We're at our high of 68 today. The weather will cool down into the 40s for the next several days.
