Brr!

After a very cold night, we awoke to 48 degrees in the bathroom area (and not much warmer in the other areas!). It's always the coldest part of the basement, since we section that area off with quilts. The woodstove just can't make the heat go that far back, especially with the quilt barrier. Our trip to Menard's for styrofoam insulation is being expedited, since the weather will only be colder as we progress into winter.

How appropriate: Our 7-year-old had to read the following poem this morning:

WHETHER THE WEATHER BE FINE,
OR WHETHER THE WEATHER BE NOT,
WHETHER THE WEATHER BE COLD,
OR WHETHER THE WEATHER BE HOT,
WE'LL WEATHER THE WEATHER
WHATEVER THE WEATHER,
WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT!

I better unplug the computer before we experience another power surge.

Hi Lynn!

Sounds like a little styrofoam insulation in your ceiling would do wonders! That uninsulated ceiling you have now is like an open window above you.

At least you don't have to go outside to use your bathroom facilities!!!!

Snowmaking is progressing nicely at the winterpark. These cold temperatures make for great snowmaking weather. I've been dressing in my full arctic gear when I go out to check the machines tho.

Sure is great to sit close to the radiant warmth of my woodstove and eat a bowl of homemade vegetable soup!

I hope that your ceiling gets insulated soon so that your living space warms up!

Best wishes!
