    Hey, I still want to know how you are keeping warm. Does your heating system handle the low temperatures? Are your pipes freezing? Are you doing anything to keep the heat in? Are you covering the windows, putting blankets on the door to keep the drafts out?

    We always turn the heat down at night. My mom turned it down Monday night when she went to bed. I was still up. I had to turn it back up about 15 minutes later. The temperature had dropped 7 degrees in the house in less than 15 minutes!!! Crazy!!!

    I know people with frozen pipes. We have a heated basement, so we've been fine. My house in NC was on a slab. I would have been worried if I had a house like that here!

    Oh- and we have a heat wave. It is currently 16 and feels like 7. :lol:

    Starting Friday it will be much better. F- 37, Sa- 42, Su- 35, M- 40, and T- 35. All the snow should melt.

    I woke up to find out that it was 11 degrees outside. Not school weather to me.

    I think it may warm up enough today (above about 0F with the windchill) for the kids to go outside for recess. Thank goodness, everyone has cabin fever.

    -23F this a.m. Don't think it will warm up enough for them to go outside by lunchtime!

    It's nicer in Phoenix than it is here! We are looking at mid 80s for the next few days. Too hot for January! :(
