    I woke up this morning and it was 64 degrees in the house and I put on socks and turned the oven on!

        Better than me. I've mastered bundling him up and he handles severe cold like a champ. I'm usually begging him to let me get back inside.

          Did you get your record cold temperature?

            If we break it it will be tonight. We're sitting at -16 now and it will bottom out around 6AM. My phone is currently forecasting a low of -25, so it's in play.

            Pete (thinks we hit -23 last night)

              Breaking records is fun and all, but Iím not sure Iím rooting for it.

                Today I learned what a frost quake is...the hard way.

                  We didn't set the record. We bottomed out at -25 degrees.

                  Nearby Rockford, IL did set an all time record, hitting -29 degrees last night, the coldest temperature ever recorded in Rockford.

                    We just had a few Frost quakes out here in MA last week. I still don't fully understand what they are, but they aren't always harmless -- glad you're was.
