We're going down to the thirties both tonight, and, tomorrow night. We aren't expected to go any higher than 46 degrees tomorrow during the day. Sunday we should hit a balmy fifty degrees, then drop to 38 during the night. Argh......

Cold here as well and they're talking snow the beginning of next week.

Getting ready for another major snow hit this Sunday, with a 2nd one around Wednesday as well. I really wouldn't mind even a slightly wider gap tween these storms. <sigh>

We are in for high winds with a prediction of downed trees and power lines. No power and temps in the low teens is not going to be pleasant.

That reminds me of the good old days, when I walked to school thru snow drifts fence high, and uphill both ways. Rolling Eyes

I remember the snow being waist high but I was little. And walking what seemed like forever through what would be smaller than some mall parking lots I have been in. The classes were in 10 ft. high rooms with steam heat, wood floors and cast iron and wood desks that still had holes for inkwells. The good times followed me home if I were sick. Our doctor made house calls and he only believed in medicine that was administered subcutaneously. That was through a painful sticker to the seat. His artillery is now on display in the city museum in the basement of my old school.

The first one-room schoolhouse I attended is still standing. We had a thread about it awhile back. It had those 10 foot ceilings and a big wood stove in the middle of the floor. I remember it being a big deal when they got a used Iron Fireman coal stoker furnace for the basement. I ate some of the best meals I ever ate in the cafeteria of that old school house.

There are hundreds of school houses like that in the Midwest. I love that architecture. Thanks, 75.

Our current spate of nasty weather is rumbling and scraping across Atlanta. The temps have stayed in the upper 30's to 40's. The news and government outlets have had dire and horrendous predictions causing a rush to the filling and milk and bread stations. I got my gas yesterday to serve as ballast for the rear of the truck. I also bought a nice aluminum backed alcohol thermometer as I was getting sick of the errant readings on my two dial thermometers. The little thing is as accurate as the weather station readings online. It is a Taylor of the type one could obtain for free from the folks who would pump .35/gallon gasoline into your car, and mean it.

Thank God you don't live in New England. Those poor people are taking it on the chin up there. "Mr X11?" Another cat, I assume?

Is your place equipped to handle cold like that? Are your pipes protected from freezing? All the pipes around here are on the outside of the house and in the attic. Broken pipes can get really interesting.

I put in electric heat tapes and insulation for the hot water lines. I'm so pleased!

Well it was a whole 9 degrees last night at the farm. I had the heat up to 72 incase the power went out. I do have a generator but it take a bit to connect it up. I need to install a transfer box! When we are not there I keep the heat a 50 degrees. But when it does get down to 50 the pipes in the walls will freeze, so I have to keep it at 65 now.

Wonder would it would arrive warm if I sent it in a Thermos bottle? The weather babe says it is supposed to be 84 here tomorrow. I am getting the Buick ready for a car show on the 28th.
