It was a sunny 6F when I got up at 7 this morning. Has already screamed up to 9F. Whoa! High is supposed to be 22F. Thankfully the wind isn't blowing at 20+ mph like the last several days. Still a bit windy, though. We're supposed to be cut loose from this bitter cold by Sunday. It's predicted to be cold, but not as brutal.

We're the same as Katie, except about 5 degrees colder.

9 degrees and very windy. House inside is 60 degrees , even with the coal stove going. El cheapo won't turn on the electric heat even temporarily to make the house warmer. Meanwhile I have to wear extra clothing to keep warm.

in White Lake Township. "It was minus 15 degrees (below zero) at 7:30 a.m.," said meteorologist Steve Freitag. "That is cold. It is a record-setting temperature"
The previous low of 14 degrees below zero was set in 1972, Freitag said.
That's in Fahrenheit. It's being caused by a cold front known as an "Alberta Clipper".

So.... I blame Alix for this.




(No, not really)

La de da de dum...I should probably not mention that we are currently at a balmy 5C (33F) then. I am soooooo thankful all that blisteringly cold weather is over for a bit.

Ronjohn, if it is actually the weather we've had for over a month, you'd better break out ALL your woolies and buy some long underwear. It was NASTY

Would he prefer to see you in a bed in the next room to Dave Hutchins? Or pay the Dr. bills? Or have to cook and eat alone?

Tell him it's an early Valentine's Day present!

all he cares about is saving money and not having to pay higher electric bill.

I don't think Drs are any cheaper.
But I have to say, having had gas, oil and electric for heating systems at one time or another, electric is the most expensive, and least efficient.
