    I know my local hardware store is out of snowblowers and running low on salt and shovels. I've got a spare snowblower in my attic. Maybe I should tune it up and auction it to the highest bidder.

    Its a toro s-200. weighs about 20 pounds. also the attic is above my garage and has stairs. I got 2 of them off the side of the road a few years back. They had rope cought in the spinning part, jamming it up. unwrapped the rope, cleaned the carbs, and they both worked fine. Sold one right away to a friend, threw the other one in the attic.

    I am running at design temps, and it's -24˚ outside now.

    My furnace is about 6k oversized (Can't get it smaller than 60k) so I'm guessing -30˚ is where it may be at for 2nd stage to stay on.. Humidifier been off,(Frost guard) and it was 23% yikes.. I bump frost guard up to get the dryness out, and wow the windows frosted up quick!

    Hey Mayguy, here is a dumb question ... -24 to -30 do you or can you feel the difference if you are outside for say ten minutes? I have not been in outside cold like that. I have worked in -40 freezers so I know how much that sucks.

    My 5 ton Geocomfort Geothermal heat pump kept the inside at a cozy 70 degrees, outside was brr -7.5 at 9:00am this makes a new and interesting bench mark for our new heating system.

    We set a new record last night in Aberdeen, -41... I can't believe that didn't freeze hell over!

    It was -38 this morning when I was out, now it's a balmy -14 and it actually does feel semi warm!

    I will say this, being outside in the super cold weather like that is a whole new experience. I've been out in the -20 stuff quite a bit, but that extra 15-20 degree's of cold sure is noticeable. Cant' breath through your nose very long before your nose hairs turn into icicles, had a tough time breathing through my mouth very long too, the cold actually kinda made my teeth hurt.

    It's supposed to be in the mid to high 40's tomorrow when i get home, a 80 degree temp swing should really screw up my body... shorts and t-shirt time!

    At that temps you better be bundled up! Skin can freeze in 10 mins at temps. But yeah, you can feel it being colder. I think that temps is colder than in the freezer (if the fan is not blowing on you)

    Yeah, design is -7F around here... s'bin -25F in the mornings for a couple of days now.

    Most of my direct MUAs are 80 to 100F design rise. Getting real tight with the happy factor
