I am not sure that I have a "basement heater" that I can control separately from my thermostat. 2005 Airstream (Thor) 39' diesel pusher freightliner chassis. I also saw mention of a tank heater.

Just finished snow blowing 18" of drifted snow at a -3 in my driveway for the third time since Sunday morning.

LOL Gary I feel so sorry for you basking in 50 degree temp.
We are originally from Syracuse NY 15 years ago but very true about blood thinning out. When the temp gets below 60 we start to button up. brrrr for tonight.

Try using the snowblower and having these hellish winds blow it all back in your face!!!!

That's cold, my friend...

It's been a long time since we've had this kind of cold, maybe when I was a kid.

Did you catch the Winter Classic at the stadium, by chance. Sure would have liked to see that. Even though the Wings lost.

It is all relative-- Pensacola, just North of I-10, forecast is for 15 deg. Earlier they had called for 11deg, I finally winterized today. . I'm on 50 amp next to the S&B and usually run the entire winter on propane heat and lights in the wet bay, without winterizing. .

DD in Michigan is well below zero with 20+mph wind and snow, and some folks are getting even more serious cold weather.

I think the RV's will mostly be ok but I would not want to own a citrus grove in North or central Florida. They will not have a nice night!!

Just a heads up in case you haven't checked the weather. I was going to put a utility light in my wet bay but of course, as soon as I turned on, the light bulb blew. LOL off to the store again.

Best of luck.
Better buy some extras, those replacement fluorescents and LED's don't put out much heat, when all the incandescent are gone.
