Just wondering, am I the only one doing the cold weather dance trying to summon old jack frost himself. I must be doing it wrong all I keep getting are days in the 60's and 70's.

BTW...I pointed the IR thingy at the fire...pretty neat watching the temps drop from the fire as I worked my way down the grate. 900 plus just before the blue ladies....hotter just above them, but this thing only goes to 1000 or so...
