    Stay WARM!!!!

    I know, we shouldn't complain, but the humid cold REALLY is cold!

    They say it will be the LONGEST cold snap in this area in nine years.

    We just got out of some record setting cold; I kind of wish it would come back. Nothing a good hot fire in the woodstove can't drive away. :supergrin:

    First night of the year that we had to put the heat lights on the chickens and shut the horses in the barn with blankets. Not looking forward to my farm chores in the morning. Global warming my ass!

    I'll think about you when I put my feet up on the hearth and sip my coffee in the morning.:supergrin:

    I honestly can't imagine not having a woodstove, but I know there are places where you almost never need one.

    I remember one day at the beach in N. California, it was 69° and sunny with a light wind. I watched these people get out of their car and bundle up in heavy coats to go walking on the beach. They were from S. California.:rofl:

    All that really shows is how we get used to living where we do and our comfort is somewhat subjective.

    22 degrees F when I headed out at 7:00 this AM. The winds are gusting 30 - 40 MPH along the ocean so the windchill is in the single digits. I can only imagine how many burst water pipes there are around here.

    Mom got home on Thursday. I talked to her yesterday but she didn't say much about the weather there. I think she's just happy to be home and close to her fireplace! She LOVES NC!!!!

    Temperatures are just hovering around freezing....but not quite there where we are. But we usually don't worry about water pipes here. Our biggest concerns are pets and plants. Our pet is totally a house dog so that isn't
    even our concern.

    Stay warm, Eric!
