It was six above as I pulled in the garage. We’ve haven’t bottomed out quite yet. Last night was comparably cold.
I walked in the house and it was warm. Sure, I’m burning twenties in the furnace, but it’s comfy here. We are equipped to deal with New England winters.
Let me contrast that with Florida.
