-8 at 7:15, up to -2 at 9:15, wind from WNW at 25 mph. At least it's sunny. 520 ran 15.8 hrs in the last 24 hrs. I think even the forest animals are wishing for a coal fire this first day of '09. Not a good day to go mountain climbing; chilly skiing, snowmobiles are buzzing around, bob houses shaking and straining their cables. Neighbors are out walking their dogs; damn, that's gotta be chilly. Oil was back up to 44.30 a barrel.......Actor Matt Dillan caught speeding in Newbury, VT at 106 mph on I-91 in a rented '09 Chevy Impala (didn't know they had enough power to do that). Looks like SSDD in our little corner of the world. Enjoy the sun, hope you all have a fun day with family and friends.

Currently 2F here, up from -2 at 7 am, I have no idea what the wind chill is, but it is pretty bad. The Hitzer is running wide open keeping the house at 65, I just fired up the oil boiler to get the house up to 70 :(

I have had a heat wave here compared to you guys. It only went down to 16* last night and it is currently 20*. But that is ok because the wife has to tend the stove and she can only pick up and dump about 20 pounds at a time. This is the first time she has tended the stove and I can honestly say she needs some practice.

Minus 25 last night in Aurora, IL. Got up to -6 today and will probably be -25 again tonight. LL Pioneer keeping my shop a toasty 73 right now. The cold is heading east, but I don't think it will get this cold in NEPA. Forcast is for a balmy 7 tomorrow.
