Late October going on early January


There’s nothing unusual about nighttime temps in the high teens – but not this early in the season. And tonight’s supposed to do something extraordinary…

Single digits in October! This is good, it’ll test my new plumbing insulation while there’s still mild weather ahead to fix any deficiencies. Better the pipes freeze now than in December.

Or so I’ll tell myself. Either way, the bedroom heater keeps things nice and cool rather than huddle-under-the-blankets cold, and this morning I stoked the woodstove too much and the main cabin got oppressively hot. At the moment I’m typing this in a t-shirt, which is an abomination unto the woodshed. But the fire has burned down and the indoor temp will shortly become more reasonable.

    I feel ya brother, I just checked my outside temp and we are at a cool 0 deg F with about 8″ of snow that has collected over the last few days.

    It could be worse, we’re in the 0 deg F range and the weathertainers are calling for snow over the next few days.

    We had 5F this morning, at 4300 feet in southern Oregon. OTOH, the snowflakes from the coastal counties avoid our area like the plague.

    It’s only 27 degrees right now here in East Central Florida. That is in metric, of course…

To the stake with the heretic!
