It Is Really Cold
It is minus 8 degrees F at the present time. This is not an exaggeration. Note the improvised extension cord from the house to my well. Those are Christmas lights finalizing the connection between the electrical grid and a 75W light lit in the excavation for the well system’s tank, to prevent it from freezing and blowing out.
It has not been this cold in my memory. Currently, the house’s water system is frozen, and I am unshowered. I am trying to keep my water system from exploding.
Yesterday, my car died because of snow stuffing the engine compartment, blowing out the alternator’s drive belt.
