I certainly hope you are, since it will stay very cold through the first weekend in January 2018! This is a long stretch of bitter cold, especially when one considers that this is still December, not mid or late January, which is usually our coldest time of the year. Some moderation looks to occur after next weekend (Jan 6-7) but for how long? That is a BIG question and something to figure out later.
Highlights for now include:
I would say enjoy ... the warmth of a fire in the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate surrounded by family/friends.

The education continued as a hobby by reading the blogs of some of the best forecasters in the business. Although forceasting the weather is an imperfect science, it is a pleasure to follow what the Creator has made.
