    :coolgrin: How is the heat demand where you are? One rule. You need to post a picture of the thermometer.
    And no, no temperatures from your freezer please. Just outside your house. :lol:
    I know it won't be me, I am seeing 32 degrees on my back porch right now. 9:38PM Thursday
    But I will take my picture early in the morning when I get up. Hopefully 5:30 am.
    Good luck. And have a good one.

    You are right. Still pretty warm. I have a feeling there are some cold temperatures in the higher elevations though, and I think some of those guys up in Canada and Alaska will probably win. So how cold is it where you guys are? Here is mine. 28 °F on the back porch.

    yes but how do we KNOW that this is not a photo from last year ??? ;-)

    this could be a fun thread come mid-winter...looking forward to readings from canada and alaska.
    mine's a digital that displays indoors so i can show the difference between in and out....and the value of burning wood.

    You know it's cold when you are at the lower design limits of that thermometer. That's Antarctic temperature!

    That and the dial thermometer didn't factor in the 25+ mph winds there were then. Those temps aren't uncommon in mid Dec- late Feb. Oh and the fun part is I work outside for my job even when it is this cold what fun huh?

    Not bad here either. Just went for a walk with the cat in the woods. But not in flip flops. The cat went barefoot though.

    Our miserable weekend is gonna be because of cold rain.

    It just took me 10 full minutes of looking around for where the "ticking" sound was coming from before I realized it was sleet hitting the window.

    Yeah these guys give us grief every year. What they need to do is cut wood when it is 99 degrees and then skate on ice in the winter. That would calibrate their backsides. ;-)

    My 898 foot downhill S-curved driveway is a real delight in a sleet or straight ice storm. They put a telephone pole at the outside of the first curve dropping off the hill. >:-(

    Amen on both counts, I am an Indiana transplant to Virginia:
    I refuse to cut wood in the summer here. I may not know Alaska cold, but Alaska doesn't know Virginia hot. 95 degrees and 95% humidity is like trying to breath with your head in a bowl of hot soup.

    Also, give me the snow on flat ground any day. A little bit of ice or snow on these hills and suddenly your 10 minute commute turns into steering a 1500 lb toboggan through a chute of cars off the road on both sides. Fortunately I've gotten smart enough to wait until noon when its all melted :).

    Yikes! At least you've got some snow to slow you down before you hit the lake.
