Outside it is -7 degrees fahrenheit. Minus SEVEN.
Colder, actually, than my kitchen freezer.
The News folks keep telling us how this is the coldest we have had in years. Perhaps the coldest on THIS calender day, but not an unusual cold. We get this cold or colder most winters. It isn’t an unusual event. Thankfully, the wind is not high.
That doesn’t mean I am going outside any sooner than I have to though.
I have the woodstove going and the house is 70-ish.
