Yesterday, Jamie and I did a little experimenting with a pot of boiling water... My husband giggle at my broadcast. He told me I should become a news reporter. ~ yeah, right!
Curious why boiling water freezes? You can find the answer HERE. When we started back into the house and opened the door... a wall of smoke came billowing out. The warm temperatures met with the colder temps and *poof* smoke.
Someone asked me if our furnace runs constantly with these temperatures. I'm sure a lot of houses around here do, but we don't allow it to run constantly. With the price of propane almost $2.00 a gallon and having to buy a minimum of 200 gallons, we use several small space heaters to keep the furnace from burning through a tank. At night, when the smaller heaters are turned off for bedtime, the furnace will turn on and run some during the night. Of course, we all sleep better when the house is cooler and our skin and sinuses are thankful for not using the propane so much
For now, we are snuggling under blankets
and sipping hot cocoa and enjoying our winter weather.
