The thermometer next to the wood stove says it’s 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius) inside… next to the stove.
Outside, it’s heaps colder, and, with the windchill, about 7 below zero Fahrenheit or 22 below zero Celsius. This is a warm day in Siberia.
Of course, this is South Carolina (though up in the mountains). In Minnesota, we once got to 74 below zero Fahrenheit with 104 below zero windchill. That’s 59 and 76 below zero Celsius. Colder than Siberia. Hah! So, I should be used to it, right?
Today’s a day just to feed the stove. Brrr!!! Perhaps I’ll be able to steal some time to do up a couple hundred more emails.
