Coldest Winter

We have only been in our current house for 5 winters, but this is by far the most we’ve ever paid to heat it during the winter. One month was 40% higher than our previous max and we’ve even had the thermostat turned down lower than it was in previous years.

Cliff Mass has a post up showing that this is the coldest Seattle winter in 32 years! It hasn’t been hard to notice the extended periods of colder than average weather. I hope that it breaks soon and we can start getting some spring weather, but there’s no end in sight.

This cold wet weather has made for a pretty spectacular ski season, or so I’ve heard. I think I’ll be finishing up the year with 0 ski days.
