I just checked the temperature on the porch...there isn't one. :lol: Dead center on 0, but the NW wind is giving it some extra "bite" outside. Tonight/tomorrow morning is supposed to be the coldest of the week.

YIKES!!!! I thought we were cold at 9 with about a 15 knot wind but minus 33 makes me glad we are where we are at in NE PA. It's currently 9 with a forcast high of 11. We have 72 in the living room with 65 in the upstairs bedrooms. Our little LL Econo1 blower is running heating the whole house. It is purring along at 500F measured by a magnetic contact thermometer just above the top door.

Momma is sitting in her rocking chair in front of the coal stove and the cat is asleep in her lap.

It's a Norman Rockwell moment. :D :D :D
