    We had that nasty below zero and high winds for about three days. Empty every stick of wood here keeping warm.

    We then had a day that was up to 50. We spent that day cutting some more wood to refill the storage area.

    Cold again now but at least not zero and high winds for the moment.

    Yeah...we're (irony alert) sweating out the possibility of this cold snap continuing to the point where we can no longer afford to heat our home here.

    When you're attemting to push your inside temperature 80 degrees higher than the outside air, that 275 gallon tank of # 2 heating fuel doesn't last very long, let me tell yas.

    I think our high today will be 72. I think y'all should just abandon ship and move South.

    I feel for you ed. Last year it was natural gas where we were at. I am grateful for the dead trees we had not trimmed here for years. They are sure a blessing this winter.

    It's just not right, that anywhere on earth other than the poles, northern canada, siberia and a few other spots, should temps be this low!!!

    Warmer temps and snow with it, coming on wednesday....

    Cars started, amazingly....but shook, like they were alive and shivering, until they heated up.

    my entire living area is filled with wood in every corner that we could fit some....hubby worked for hours yesterday after it was delivered to bring it inside, and stack it neatly outside....

    i probably have enough wood inside to get me to wednesday, when the warmer air is suppose to come in...

    THank God, no one ever comes to my door and i would have to let them in to this place....they would be tripping over all the wood everywhere! Saves me that embarassment of someone seeing the disaster area in here! :eek:

    care

    Is that an invitation? Do you have a pool/pond? Will the dog have a few acres to roam around on?

    the 70's is lovely, that's what it is like around here for the 4 months of summer...

    idealy, i would like to live in Florida near my parents in the winter months and here in maine during the spring, summer and fall....

    90 degrees with 90% humidity for 5 straight months is WHY I do not live in the south year round.
