I had to break the ice on the bird bath this morning. Golly Gosh it's getting colder by the day. We have been told to expect artic conditions soon. We have been stocking up so's if we get a real bad long winter we can stay put and leave the fool hardy to go out.

Going to be 37F on Saturday

then back up in the 60's. Typical temperatures for Western Pennsylvania this time of year.

The heat has been on but the furnace does not run except at night when the temp is in the 40's. Still holding off on the window plastic as well..

Sorry to ask but..

This plastic you talk about. We have double glazed glass that keeps heat out in summer and heat in in winter. Is what you are talking about extra on top of this? Or do you just wrap your house up in a bl...y great plastic bag?

some of us...

have the old style windows that are single pane. So in winter, there is a clear plastic that you put around the inside of the window with double sided tape. then you use a hair dryer and it kind of shrinks the plastic making a tight clear covering over the glass. works like the windows your talking about.

YB also puts his thermals on the windows like Dr. Dentins? Now that would be a Kodak moment to share with us here. :)
