You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Not as impressive as swings we've had in the same locale recently. 60 or more degree swings within less than 24 hours IINM.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I picked up a guy at the airport 2 years ago in February. He was coming from Melbourne where it was 112 degrees and landed in NY where it was 12 degrees.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

We've gotten that in Chicago before. I believe we'll have an 80 swing in the coming week. About - 45 here with the wind now.

How does your heat keep up with that? Here in NY when it's 0 - 10 the heat in my house struggles to get above 68 or so, even though it's set to 70.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

It doesn't really. The key is not letting the in house temp drop, as much as possible. My windows are old, so there is a constant draft. I have baseboard radiators for heat. It's probably 55 inside. currently around -20 without the wind outside. I personally think this whole thing is a bit overrated.

Wow 55! We did spray insulation a few years ago and I'm convincing myself it helped for my own sanity but truthfully I'm not too sure and they only did the attic since we didn't want to open walls. When it's really windy we have to stay in coats and blankets.

I think think the lowest I've seen my house get to was 64 and that's only because of the wind that keeps blowing in.

My gosh, I can't imagine being 55 inside, good luck and stay warm!

Well, I'm in a condo. So I have no cold coming for the whole inner side, where it's a bit warmer, but the out facing walls are all leaking air (we have sleeve units). It's not too bad overall.

Just pulled my digital thermometer out of my fishtank, and it dropped to 56. That's on the warm side of the room, on top of a tank heated to 76

CLE is not as cold as Chicago, but I agree. -5 today and -35 with wind. Don't get me wrong, it's very cold, but with a couple layers and good coat, hat and gloves, no reason that they cancelled school today.

Maybe get a space heater?

Was going to ask how you shower when it's so cold inside, but maybe I should start a new thread for that
