So how cold is it? January 17, 2009 11:29 am

It’s so cold that people are turning to witches’ titties for warmth!

It was -12°C this morning outside and probably 10°C in my office. I’ve had to put on the same layers of clothing that I would use to go outside simply to work in my office. The cold of my office has been so unbearable that I almost haven’t been able to work. I finally broke down and decided to sacrifice the door that leads from my office to the outside and covered it in thick plastic. The temperature in my dungeon almost instantly became more bearable! I think I’m going to get a little crazy with the plastic and see how warm I can make this house. Maybe I’ll get a spool of insulation and insulate the ceiling in the garage which is under the family room upstairs. What I wouldn’t give to be installing new windows right now!

Doug meant to say, “What I wouldn’t give to pay someone with experience and appropriate tools to install new windows on our house right now.”

Yeah, sure.
