Saw that. Going to get even lower; snow and temps. Don't remember it ever being this cold during the middle of the day in Phx. Normally, it is T-shirt weather this time of year.

I was thinking of filling my fresh tank to re-furbish it, but I think with it being almost empty, I'll just drain what's left and open the low spot and sink valves. Maybe get the trouble lights ready. Last year, I did have a lavatory line briefly freeze up. Can't hurt to be safe.

We were thinking of heading south for warmer weather but it looks like now we'd have to go all the way to Florida so maybe we'll just stay home for now. It only dips into the 20's here at night with high's in the 40's. Not worth traveling if you can't find t-shirt weather! The MH is winterized and tucked into it's shelter so we'll wait and see what the new year brings....

When Rving. Set the heater and AC where you are comfortable. Which one comes on determines if you go north or south.

I don't need to guess today, it is -22 *F right now with the wind chill, I got my hair cut a few days ago and it is soooo short I have a hat on inside the house! looking for the thermal socks... putting up a blanket barrier to the upstairs.... where all the heat is going...

hope this quits PDQ I am getting weary of being so cold nothing helps
old house (107 yrs) doesn't help. thank goodness this is not usual....
Waiting for a Chinook!!

Getting pretty cold on Vancouver Island too. Snowed a little today and had to spread salt on the driveway so my daughter doesn't slide into the motorhome when she gets home from work. It's a touch below freezing but the damp air makes it feel a lot colder. Good time to sit by the wood stove and think about all the things you could be doing outside.

Can't believe you are getting the cold on Van.Isle... it almost seems like an impossible feat to get any snow west of Hope...
You are right, the little cold will feel worse in the damp, goes right through your bones and moves in ..you seem to feel cold for days after it is gone...
Bundle up and protect your neck and back especially... it will help..

I feel for you as I was hoping this would be my winter haven some day, next winter will find me in the interior it might be cool or chilly, but for sure not this drop dead freezing kind of cold....
Keep warm and be glad you are where you are... could be worse!

Enough already. Will somebody PLEASE pay the gas bill? I sell lawn and garden equipment and parts, had a call from southern Alberta yesterday. His customer is using a riding lawn mower with a blade to clear snow, he is demanding the engine manufacturer supply a solution to his performance issues. Fer cryin' out loud it is thirty frickin below, the carburetor is icing up.

Live just south of San Francisco in the Silicon Valley. Had to take my DW to a doctors appointment and almost came back into the house to put long pants and a sweater on, but being a little stubborn I went with what I had and suffered through. Went to about 30 + last night but warmed up during the day.

I remember when I was in the army you changed uniforms on a specific day irregardless of what the weather was and I somewhat have kept the stup---- er tradition going.

Hey you Snowbirds come on down we can sure use the money.

Usually doesn't snow but when it does, look out.
