-4 here in southwestern Indiana with windchill of -23

We haven't even been back a year, lived near Houston for 20 years, Dallas for 10.

I just called a realtor in Florida looking for a winter place, either house or motorhome lot. I don't think I will be spending many winters up here. Hubby retires in 2 years, we came back up as his mom is having memory issues. When he is home we can take her with us till we finally have to put her in a nursing home. She isn't ready yet. I doubt she will go with us, but we will see. I just can't handle her and DD who is mentally challenged by myself. Just have to see how it plays out. I am getting ready to head out in a couple of weeks for 3 to 7 weeks.

He is on a project in Lobito, Africa and had his flight cancelled out of Indi so waiting to see if he can get out Wed, by the way its 90 where he is working. I told him there is something wrong with this picture.

Was a brisk 22 degrees in Tallahassee, Florida this AM, and forecast for 25 or so tomorrow morning. We see these temps pretty regularly here, but usually in the last week of January.
Home or RV in these temps sure beats tent camping - which I have done in this weather!
Nice thing is we don't get that funky chilly white stuff y'all get up north.

Yesterday morning (1-6-14) at 0545, the thermostat said the outside temp was 15 degrees here in DFW Metroplex, right in the center.

The heat pump for the sticks and bricks knew better than to try to wring heat from that temperature, so on came the inside heat strips, hotter than fire, and warmed the house up 5 degrees in about 5 minutes.

Only thing wrong with that is the inside heat strips draw around 70-80 amps while the outside heat pump only draws about 18-19 amps. BIG difference! But I can count the times we've had that cold temp here in DFW over the past 21 years on one hand, so thank heaven its not too often!

Anyone else notice how the forecasters were having a thrilling time calling this winter weather incursion a 'POLAR VORTEX'?

Down here on the Gulf coast in Alabama for the winter.
Disconnected city water .... opened the grey water valve...set the furnace to 65F.
Woke up to outside temps in the low 20's....city water-valve frozen solid.
Once temps reached their high of 34F for the day, took a heatgun to the city-water valve, reconnected, and got water flowing to the RV.
Tonite I will leave a small stream of water running outta the kitchen faucet
and see if that saves me from havin' to use the heatgun tomorrow.

It is cold here in Palm Springs also! Won't be back in the upper 70's until this weekend. They are airing public service announcements telling people to get out of their cargo shorts and put on long pants!
