@hamburgboy,
20 Below, huh? Guess that's why we moved to Texas, from Michigan. Our old bones began to hate that cold damp weather. Last summer's draught and unusually high temperatures were, I swear, worse than the cold, though. Nobody told me the Texas Hill Country was so humid - arrrgh, that hurts the bones, too.

The housing costs less here, but Texans might have to put in more insulation, install more energy efficient windows and, most important, put those heating ducts down the inside walls so's the vent is floor level, instead of in the ceilings. Gads, the air today was chilly by the time it reached halfway down. (fireplace is blazing still).We got an estimate for that "mud" foam insulation (sprayed in the attic rafters) - $3500.

Keep warm in Lake Ontario. 20 below!

It will get to 18 by morning. Got to be up and at work by 830. Suck. Is that a legitimate use of the word?

DON 'T suck the water out of the pipe.
Your mouth might get stuck there until Spring.

It will get above freezing in the next three hours. Then the week's forecast tells us there will be no more. If past history is a guage, we may have a few dips into freezing over the next month or two, but nothing comparable to the last four days. - Breathing a sigh of relief.
