Yes it was cold last weekend. 18 below zero on Saturday morning with a roaring northwest wind. We started Friday morning at 22 above, the temperature fell all day and well into the evening. It was cold and windy. We are feeling very lucky that we did not suffer any malfunctions or frozen pipes. The wood stoves kept us warm all through and everything started when we needed it. Except for needing more coats to go outside almost a normal winter day.
One of the most fascinating aspects of cold like this is arctic sea smoke; fog which is formed when very cold air moves over the warmer water.
I remember guiding sea duck hunters in the sea smoke, visibility was reduced all around you but sunshine directly above. That sometimes happens with fog in the summer but only rarely.
We had it rough but we can see Mount Washington on a good day (about 80 miles away) and the report from there will always makes you feel better. You can see the latest report here. They set a new lowest wind chill record.
Much warmer here for the rest of the week lucky for all of us the cold did not last very long.
I would love to hear from you. Come write
