A large cold front just blew into town and we are suffering through some extremely frigid temperatures.
It’s only a few degrees above freezing, and the rain is very cold and chilly.
The temperatures have steadily been dropping over the last few weeks, but the rain has really changed the atmosphere. It looks dreadful and miserable outdoors. All the trees are starting to shed their leaves, and the animals are starting to gather supplies for the cold months of winter. The humidity outdoors makes the cold air even more frigid. When I walk outside, I can feel the cold air right inside of my bones. Even bundling up in a jacket, sweatpants, boots, and gloves is no match for the insanely cold temperatures. As the cold air masses come down from the Arctic Circle, the winter weather starts to set in. My wife and I are prepared this year. We purchased a brand new oil furnace in the beginning of August. We were going to wait another year to buy the new oil furnace, but the heating company had a fall sale. My wife and I picked up a nice oil furnace at cost. The installation fees were quite high, but I didn’t mind paying a few dollars for the excellent service. It took half a day for the company to complete the installation process, but they didn’t forget a single step. In a few short weeks, the temperature will rapidly drop and change from cold to downright freezing. With the new oil furnace in our home, neither one of us are dreading the arrival of snow, ice, and sleet.
