    Bottomed out at minus 24 this morning. That was around 5 am. Dh got up at 7 and it was still that temp. Coming up now with the sun shining. It's a brisk minus 13 now. It "might" get above 0 today. Looking forward to that. Big dog will be able to go out on her cable. Little dog still needs to be on a leash. They are getting cabin fever bad and driving me nuts. Both want to get out to run around. Maybe tomorrow. We'll see.

    All I know is that when it's that cold, your nose hairs freeze up......lol. Hard to breathe, that sort of thing.....I have my fur lined hat that works really well for outside right now. Looking forward to a hot shower today......

    14 when I woke up, which is cold for here. All the critters were toasty warm inside last night. I read a heartbreaking story which I will NOT post about some A-H*** who let one of his dogs freeze to death on the porch. They are throwin the book at him at least.

    I just made a mad dash out to potty the dogs on leashes. Too cold to just let them out to potty on their own. Even tho Ashly is a heavy furred malamute, she is not used to this kind of weather or prolonged outtings. I got them pottied then put more food out for the birds (lot's of cracked corn for body heat) and then grabbed a big armful of firewood to add to what we have inside. Went thru a bunch last night so wanted to replenish. I try really hard to keep enough in the house so we have lot's.

    It's supposed to stay really cold thru the end of next week. Daytime highs around zero or below and nighttime lows around -15 to -20 or so. Running the water to keep pipes from freezing up. The house is banked up with snow around the foundation. I bought extra food and extra bird food on Tues so we are ok that way. Been running the car for 20 mins a couple times a day to keep the battery up.

    Even tho we have a good fire going in the woodstove it's still barely 55 in the house.

    Damn it's cold out there. Going to have to do shifts now to keep the fire going.
    This morning, I had 24 below. Wind is at 8mph, but I haven't gone outside to check. Just a few weeks ago it was in the 50s.

    Still riding that -10 to +10 range here in WI. Won't get above that until Sunday?? So Sunday is my target day for the kitchen sink cold water faucet to start working again!

    I can handle the cold, it's this blasted wind that comes with it that makes it nigh intolerable.

    BTW - does PEX run plumbing handle being frozen better than copper? I would assume yes, but not sure what it's limits are. . . . . . . .

    Don't know about pex, My black poly irrigation pipes don't have any issues. Maybe it's the same?

    We don't leave faucets running here. It can clog your drains with ice.

    Pex does handle freezing much better than copper. I used to help my BIL the plumber replace copper and galvanized pipe in dairy barns with pex.

    Oh joy.......... first the deep freeze and NOW we have a blizzard and heavy snow coming for thurs and friday.......gag...... at least 6 inches with possible 9........and 35 mph wind THEN back into the deep freeze for the weekend.. oh joy, oh joy, oh joy.

    Must be winter folks. We gonna get it all. Kinda reminds of of Little House on either the prairie or the Big Woods, lol.

    Oh and those turkeys? Well, they moved on and now we have deer coming in. One young doe has a cataract on one eye. Probably a birth defect thing. she is nice and fat tho... I have corn for her. And it's pretty protected here so the coyotes shouldn't be an issue with our dog's scent all over. I hope.

    It was so cold this morning I couldn't open the door on the first car I inspected. The door was frozen shut. I was outside all day-from 730am to 4pm. It was 12 degrees this morning, it warmed up to 24 right before I came home.

    Amen to that. I hear it might actually approach freezing this weekend though. Be nice to look back on this in February or so and say, man, I'm kind of glad we got the worst of it out of the way.

    I pray that will be the case, Blacknarwhal, but I won't be happy until mid-June arrives and all this is just a bad weather memory. Things are so strange right now.

    I haven't seen it this cold right off the bat in a new year since 1979. Don't have the actual comparisons, but I have memories...VERY cold memories of cars not starting. I don't remember how long it lasted, but I was MUCH younger and it didn't bother me near as much as it does now. Arthritis is a harsh master when it comes to weather. Extremely cold weather it seems.

    I've seen it so cold at Ft. Dix - January 2005 - that the butane in our Bic lighters wouldn't ignite. We had to use Zippo's to light our smokes.

    The steel stakes holding our Christmas light up deer are frozen in to the ground. They ain't coming out until next week, at the least.

    Like I was pointing out above we finely got down to zero (0F) degrees. Waiting to see if we make minus -2F or -5F this winter.

    I had the same car door problem yesterday. -22 at 8:30am, had to pry the truck door open. Clutch didn't want to move, gearbox full of molasses, ice on the inside of the windshield, even the steering was difficult to turn. If I hadn't had a vet apt to get to, I would have said hell with it, and gone back inside.

    It looks like after this weekend the temps are going up though. That will be a nice little break from the sub zeros.

    Key Messages: East Coast Winter Storm

    1. This winter storm is forecast to bring the potential for a mix of
    freezing rain/sleet/snow from portions of northern Florida to North
    Carolina, and snowfall northward along portions of the Mid-Atlantic into
    northern New England. Blizzard conditions are possible across portions of
    eastern New England late Thursday.

    2. If this winter storm tracks closer to the coast, it could mean more
    snow while a track farther east could mean less snow.

    3. This system has the potential to produce strong, damaging winds
    possibly resulting in downed trees and/or power outages.

    4. Minor to moderate coastal flooding/erosion is possible due to a
    combination of high tides and wave action, especially Thursday afternoon,
    January 4.

    5. Winter Storm Watches and Warnings are in effect from north central
    Florida northward through eastern New England.

    20° here this morning. Coldest it’s been in the entire six years I’ve been in Texas. These are the times that I use the winter features on the Murano: heated seats, heated steering wheel (I absolutely LOVE that!) and remote start. The remote start feature takes into account the ambient temp and activates whatever of the aforementioned features it feels are merited. Oh, and it turns the cabin heat up to blast furnace. By the time I go out ten minutes later, it’s all warm and toasty. Which is good because I have to take Hermione to the oncologist today.

    I heard that Savannah either got overnight or will get today, 5-8” of snow. I’ve never heard of it snowing there, let alone in that quantity.

    I went to bed last night happy because the latest weather report predicted another nice day today. I woke up to clouds and the weather radar showing approaching snow. It may get above freezing. Maybe it's approaching rain. Montana weather is so interesting. This afternoon I will attempt to shovel a path to the maibox. That is about 400 yards of foot deep snow. Who needs exercise equipment when you have snow and a snow shovel?

    As I said last year, I would try to pile the snow right against a house. Snow is great insulation.

    Not sure when I started this thread but, it's minus 15 this morning. Supposed to have a high around minus 10. Minus 20 or so tonight. Wind is from the west at 10mph gusting to 20/25.

    We made it thru the bomb cyclone with around another foot of snow. Out plow guy and his wife got us dug out yesterday afternoon. Said they started plowing at 3am yesterday. They did not do the roofs of house and sheds cause it was minus 10 when they were here and still blowing like crazy. It is BRUTAL out there.

    The birds and deer are all very cold. I don't know how they can handle all this deep freezer for so long. We have wind chill warnings up till noon tomorrow. Then warming up for the next week or so according to the long range forecast. According to that the deep freeze is over, just normal cold.

    This is getting on our nerves. Gonna have to run the car 3 or 4 times today to make sure it stays charged up.

    Just looked outside and the finches are all huddled together on the railing eating the seed I put out. They are so tiny. They are sitting on their feet.

    Enough already! This isn't the north pole altho it feels like it........gah......
