It is around 6 here at my house. It will be below zero by morning. No biggie, the house is a balmy 75 degrees and the Glenwood won't even break a sweat to keep it that way.

4 outside at 19:18.....72 inside.....chilly day upcoming. So much for the co-ed naked water balloon fight...bone chilling day, worse tonight. Still no snow on the ground, and remember: "Anthracite: It's what's for Winter!" Bagged went up to 330/ton today. It had been 302/ton. Still beats the hell out of $3.79/gallon for #2. Kero is $4.45/gallon. Green fire wood 205/cord. Dry 285+/cord.

I had a report from Tampa today and it was a chilly 66 degrees.
