At 9am, it was 12 degrees out, with 12mph winds, making the wind chill factor 1 degree.
Mount Mitchell, the highest point in our mountains, registered a wind gust last night at 89.9 mph.
Our heater has not kicked off since J-Man woke up this morning, which means it probably ran all night--and it is set at 69 degrees. I don't know what it would do if we didn't have thermal windows.
I know this is NORTH Carolina, but we're still below the Mason-Dixon line. BRRRRR. How do you Yankees stand it? lol
This was the scene in my back yard this morning:
We have a line of some sort of spruce trees right behind our house. The blue jays were puffed up to about 3 times their normal sizes, huddled in the spruces, facing the sun.
Those are the only birds I've seen today.
Thank goodness it's supposed to warm up to the upper 40s by Wed--and then it's predicted to rain.
I'll take it, thank you.
