18 degrees this morning with frost on the windshield. The AA sprung back to life last night after a few days of idle.

28 degrees here in good old south central Pa.I can see no visible frost but that may be because we had a nasty wind last night. I am not liking this below freezing level stuff.I thought it was springtime,I really did. Mike

My AHS 130 went out last week due to lack of a heat call and I did not re-light it yet. Now I see a definite need to re-light that bad boy since it is freezing in this house this morning as it is 27 out with a definite wind chill going on. I am going to try and keep it going through the summer for DHW as the oil burner just doesn't cut it any more.
