Here we go .....
a "warm" battery is also an advantage - you can use a heavy full amp charger in the short usage or just keep a trickle (1-2amp) charger going for a few days while it's this cold ....-11 (actual) here earlier. Up to -5 (or so) with the sun peeking through. Plumbing is OK. Furnace is OK. (Knock loudly on wood!)
I left a trouble light on near the engine block. I'll try to start the car later. Today is the last day of these extremes. My house systems handle air down to zero just fine. It's when temps drop below zero for prolonged periods that things can happen. I added new insulation to the attic and walls when I moved in. Smart move! I think that's what's really helping now.
Prep goals for the week: deep cleaning here, too! Closet re-organization continues.
|What a lovely day! I was planning on going out to lunch with a friend, but the weather didn't cooperate. another friend dropped by, dropped off some goodies for our garden experiment, and changed out a waterer for me that had frozen up. Dinner is pork chops with rice and some peach salsa that's been in the fridge that didn't seal. Just have to say - I really love my instapot. I'm not one for kitchen gadgets, but it has been quite useful.|
what kind of fur? >>> I'd like a martin fur hat - beauty of a hat when the skins are matched well - anything that isn't ranch raised is almost toooooo expensive to wear on the street around here ....I sold out of my fur hats. Apparently you real Eskimo hats keep you warm....who knew. Luckily, I was sitting on a dozen. I learned to look on the bright side a long time ago.
