in January 1979, I was snowed in at a cheap motel in Michigan.   there's probably more to that story; but it was still the 70s.

It was an easy decision when we saw the forecast.  Fortunately, I have more flexibility to work from home.  Healthcare workers don't have that option.

Can't complain after reading here, 37 at 11 pm (now) with a low of 17 tomorrow night which will be our coldest night for the week and year.  But things can change.

I could only imagine, sounds like my kind of time.

I drove the wife to work this morning.   She's not much for driving on icy roads.  The hospital she works at is open but that's about it for businesses around here.  Plumbers are going to make a killing fixing burst piping in the next week or so.

Please remind folks if they run a portable generator to make sure its not in the garage or other enclosed space. Every year I read where folks die from Co2 poisonings from generators being ran in the garage.

Everywhere I have been where it is extremely cold humans have adapted.

Could not discern if her power was on or off when texted her.

Had just seen about a large outage. She is in bed with dog.

May ask her directly but, would not know what to say to her.

Recall daughter family live there.

How are they now?

 

Just asked sister about her heat source.

They have a gas fireplace so not totally without heat.

Do they run their water trickle to keep it from freezing?

I didn't ask but they didn't say that their water was out.  Their house is on a slab and the water may come up inside the house as opposed to my house where it comes up outside then elbows in.  I have about 18" of pipe to protect from freezing.

Alright thanks...sister has power and she knows to run water overnight.

Sorry, but yes, y'all be safe too!

Thanks!

Don't miss it.  Been cold here and lots of rain.  Not hard rain but seemingly continuous rain for the last three months....  the ground is totally saturated.

 

The door at the top of the stairs has recently taken to not latching.  Could be from the house settling a bit but then, the house is now over 20 years old.  Got me wondering of it's all this constant slow moisture that might be getting deeper into the ground causing something there.

 

Or, it might simply be the crappy job I did installing the door... !!

 

Supposed to get into low 50's on Saturday, sunshine with something like 5% chance of rain.  I'm wanting to work on the tractor to get it ready for spring but don't have a shop to work in....so am stuck outside and won't work in the rain/mush.   So what is a 2-hour job has turned into several months as I keep waiting.

I hope people who aren’t used to severe cold are safe. It is no fun and not to be played with especially if you aren’t used to it and have right clothing and house heat.
