Overnight and Today...,

We set a new low record for this house since I've been living here.
We made it down to minus 14F at about 3:00 AM and stayed there for several hours.
I think that will be it for this heating season, although we will go below zero again.

It started snowing again - dry flakes, and we could see anything between two and six more inches before we go to 38 and rain tomorrow.

There's hope - life continues - and in the mean time I'm off to get some work done on one of the trucks.
