I needed an electric blanket to stay warm

The weather has been really cold & icy this week, however the weather is consistently cold, however all of us rarely have this many cold afternoons in a row, honestly, the temperatures guess colder than I can remember from past seasons.

The roads are closed at night & salted in the day before they reopen! I can’t leave the mountain when there is snow unless I use a snowmobile.

I have an oil furnace in the house & baseboard heaters. The oil furnaces usually supply enough heat to keep the house fairly warm. It’s never hot, however it’s consistently just boiling enough to stay comfortable. This week, I have been cold cold every day, after 5 afternoons of single digits temperatures, the oil furnace isn’tgetting enough heat to the house. I guess it might be time to buy a current heating system, however I’m not prepared to spend money for that unit right now. I had to find the space oil furnace in the garage. It was buried under some seasoned clothes & tools. I dusted off the vent & cleaned the air filter, and even with the space oil furnace running & the oil furnace, I was still cold cold. I had to turn on the electric blanket. I cannot remember ever being so cold! We still have more than 2 more weeks of cold Winter air, & I guess I should keep the space oil furnace & the electric blanket close. I just heard that all of us are going to acquire 6 inches of snow on Wednesday. We already have 14 inches of snow on the ground & everything is frozen solid.
