Cold Snap in Vermont
Sort of says it all--except it was -22 F at 6:30 am and is now at 1:30 pm, or 1330 for military types, -5 F! The wood stove and the sun shining through the many windows is keeping the house at a quite comfortable 69.5 F and that is fine. We cannot complain --this is the first subzero cold snap in two years although I remember about 10 years ago having -40 F for several days. I hung quilts on all the windows and doors to try to keep the cold out. It was amazing to feel the difference between the kitchen and the mud room which was closed off by a quilt! At least with this cold snap there has been no wind---wind is the enemy in a log cabin!
