Default I think winter is here..

Check out this crazy forecast for this Friday..
Weather in Woburn - AccuWeather Forecast for MA 01801

High of 9°F RealFeel® -16° and a
Low of -11°F RealFeel® -20°


Normal is, a high of 35 and a low of 17.. On average..

It very rarely gets that cold around here.. Must be a forecasting mistake..

If it's not, we are going to be burning a few gallons of fuel oil..
Sanyos will be hard pressed to keep us warm..

Wow! I think -12 around here would break a record..

Good news, the forecast has been revised! The Low for Friday is now -6°..

I just peeked at Weather in Costa Rica.. Wow, it's a lot warmer than Texas is right now.
Some places in the low 80s!! That's my kind of winter weather!

Not this stuff..
There's Typo on the arrow, it should say, "You Are Here"!



Got an Amazon package this morning. Had no clue what could be in the box..
My last order was yesterday, it's due in a couple of days.
Opened it up and got my EcoGift! A brand new Black&Decker TLD100!
It works great! I'll be doing a little review on it later on..

The Sanyos are getting a work out today.. 26.5 kWh in 16.2 hours..
It's like they're pulling 818 watts each, full time..

Been chilly here during the last 16.2 hours!!



It just peaked at 24.4 deg F...

Looks like the rate of temp drop might be slowing down a tad..

It's 3.4°F now and the Sanyos are still working..
All the snow is triggering Defrost cycles so the indoor temp is
bouncing down to 20C and climbing back up to the 21C setpoint.



I'm done shoveling until tomorrow.. Too dang cold of me.
