Outside temperatures today are in the low forties. Tonight we are getting down to just around freezing. These are conditions I'm used to and can more easily cope with. This last week of cold primarily impacted my energy usage. We burned much more propane than normal, and I used electric space heaters to augment the heaters already out in the shop, apartment and enclosed portion of the barn. That will mean some adjustment to the budget but I feel like we got off easily, because as far as I can tell, we had no permanent damage. A lot of people here will be trying to fix broken pipes today. Especially those who have second homes up here and didn't drain the pipes before they went back to Florida.
The snow and ice is gone, except for some ice hanging down off the roof edges. No trouble with the roads.
