Here we are in the thick of the cold season. Unsuprisingly, it has been cold. It’s a few degrees below zero (F) outside this morning, and 48º in the kitchen (the fire hasn’t kicked in yet…)
The average temp this winter, so far, now stands at 54.4º. Standard deviation 4.5º. Maximum 66.9º, minimum 42.9.
Here’s the latest graph!
The long flat spot around Jan 1 was when we went away for a few days. We do have one petroleum-burning device in the house (a Rinnai propane heater in the cellar), but ironically we only turn it on if we’re going to be away from the house for a few days, to make sure the pipes (and cats) stay liquid. It does a pretty good job of holding the house at about 50.
