It didn't come though Oregon to get to us, it came straight down from the north, there was a moist air system that came from the West that met with it and created the big dump, but now there is just cold coming from N by NE. Now we need a pinapple express to come from the SW and collide with it over head.
If I hadn't weatherized, my next moths power bill would be a doozy. There was one end of the door bottom that was a bit higher than the rest (though I couldn't see light under it), and the cold creeped under it and frost formed on that corner of the door.
The truck almost didn't start, I plugged in the engine block heater last night too, but the plug was dirty and corroded (the protective cap had come off who knows when), so it did little good. I just sanded of all the dirt and corrosion though, so tonight it should keep my block from turning into a steel ice cube.
