Historical seasonal average snowfall
TOTALS for the northeast range from
20-30". That's as measured from Dec.
21 to March 21.
The last two winters(2013-14 and
2014-15) CT alone got over 60"
in that time period! Philadelphia
and NY City got almost an entire
SEASON's average in the one storm
on Saturday Jan. 23!
And Alaska has averaged way below
what New England totalled the last
few seasons, so with all of this I
don't know WHAT the heck is going
on! I'm just sick of living in the winter
bullseye of mother Earth.

We use a 220 volt heater. The body is an orange cube about one foot on a si
de. I believe it's 5,000 watts. I'd like to convert to propane or fuel oil;
maybe now that I'm retired I can work on that this summer.
We've converted our hoop green house into a wood frame, but didn't get
it finished before winter. We did get the sides and roof covered and
insulated and then covered the whole thing with our former hoop house
plastic cover. With all the insulation we've used half the propane this
year to heat it than we used last year, plus, since we have fish tanks
in there, the water helps maintain the ambient temps.
