Reading the temps this morning about Embarrass, MN at -54 below zero......ouch that is cold. Anyone live near this N.E. Mn. town?

Well........good morning all, have a cup of hot hot beverage to warm you up. Looks like the "cold front" went all the way to the Gulf Coast.

I can just see our gas company rubbing their hands together, and seeing the PROFITS...hahaha.

got a fill of propane last week, $1.899 a gal. Neighbor down the road with a different company paid $2.50 a gal. Swore I was going to throw out that worthless ventless fireplace last summer and have a pellet stove put in, but didn't get to it.
14 degrees this morning, in this kind of temp with the thermo set at 73, I burn 2.6 gals a day to heat about 1400 sq ft. Any pellet stove lovers out there?

-54 deg. WOW !
Going from a high of 70 a couple of days ago, down to 2 deg. above here in north central WV this morning is more than cold enough for me.
I can't really complain though, we have been very lucky so far this winter with above normal temps and no snow to speak of.
I'm sure glad that I don't have an "outside job" and sure feel sorry for those that do.

And yes SusieQ, you probably have the same "gas company" that we do in this part of WV and in the last few years the prices have gone "out of this world". I feel so sorry for the elderly people trying to live on a fixed income of 6 or $700 a month.
Sure, the rules says that the gas company can't turn the gas off during the winter, but how can the fixed income people ever catch up in the summer months and eat too?

Not to worry. That -54o is a "dry" cold.

Dry cold, is pretty much like a dry county. Neither one is any fun at all.

So much the temp, as the humidity...
