Cold here too Kathleen--2 degrees but really -12 with wind chill factor!!! It feels like -25 when you walk Muddy! I put the heat on for the first time in years in my basement--it's not perfect, but takes the edge off--all this cement down here absorbs the cold for days--next week in the 40's so I should be back to good down here.
I hope your pipes don't freeze--so far so good here--the oil guy comes tomorrow with another 100 gallon load--so we should be in good shape this weekend. I finally convinced Tom to buy those rubber flaps for the drafty doors--he was using sleeping bags bunched up against two doors! I said this not only looks ridiculous (imagine 2 sleeping bags in the mudd room--looks like bums sleeping on my floor day & night)...so far the door flap things work pretty well...but people would walk in from the garage and trip over the sleeping bags--hello...we don't need broken bones over this draft situation!!!
