    We’re not used to these temperatures. Running a de-icer and everything seems happy enough. Of course now, as I write this post it is some 50 something degrees out and raining...welcome to New England.

    Our son lives in central Massachusetts and is getting whip-sawed between single digits, single digits with snow and high wind, low 60's with rain and now due to go back to single digits. I think I will stick with the Pacific Northwest!

    We were out in the PNW earlier this year. I miss the area!

    We, I think, are just getting out of our January Thaw in New Hampshire. Just in time for my return from Mexico. It was colder here when we got back but it felt colder down there, at night. Funny how the quality of the air, moisture, pressure, wind, angle of Sun can have such an effect on how it feels regardless of what the thermometer reads.

    I may have to put socks back on Wednesday with a low of 39. No heat in the boat makes for chilly mornings

    Not soon enough Bob. We decided to leave the boat here this winter as we've spent so much time away in the last 12 months. Next year it is the I.C.W. for us!

    You made me laugh. I spend much of the winter cruising around inside our home without socks. It freaks my father in law out when he sees my not wearing socks...

    Yes, somehow location makes a difference. We have done some tent camping in Florida when the temperatures were in the mid 30's...
    Fun but really cold!

    When your high temp for the day is below zero (farenheit), then you can complain about it being cold....;)
