It's -17 F and, if that is not bad enough, we're facing the winter trifecta: cold, high winds and snow later today.
Interesting factoid: we lost power for about 8 hours yesterday. While the house was kept nice and cozy with our fireplaces, I was concerned the hot tub water system might freeze.
Surprisingly, the water temperature only dropped about 10 degrees... thank goodness for closed cell foam insulation. We enjoyed the hot tub last night while temperatures were -20 F.
I resisted the urge to throw myself in the snow after the hot tub.
