morning ya'll. this cold front extended its dip on down
into NC and this morning it was 17F. yesterday did not
get up above freezing. today is forecast to reach 45F.
for this location 17F is grounds for using the word cold
as an adjective.
ya'll have a nice day.
-7.6F, not counting windchill (i don't seem to have a memory
function under windchill).
but you probably really didn't want to know that ;)
ours is being held up by the snowbank. Tom pushed the snow a
bit too hard with the tractor. we were trying to get the big
banks at the end of the drive a bit lower... at least enough
to see a Mini Cooper ;) seriously, people, including the
Nottingham school bus driver, drive like idiots (45-50 in a 25
zone. narrow, twisty & hilly) on our road & it's nice to see
what's going too fast down the road before it hits you...

Hey - we have people that come screaming down the hill and blow right
through their stop sign (those of us going straight have right of way). And
I can't see them (shrubbery blocking, snow mounds blocking).
the metal roof will be insulated & it'll be built with an air
space between it & the existing roof to create a bit more
pitch and allow for vents & soffits, which we don't currently
the sum total insulation in this house is about 8" of
vermiculite in the attic crawl. heat suck is nothing new.

Sounds good. I'm still happy we opted for the R50 roof. We wanted more, but
the building inspector was unused to super insulated houses and other such
energy saving things (no solatubes like I wanted, no berm, no heat pump...
The only thing I'd change is to replace the shingles with slate or metal
tiles (look like traditional roofing) and I want to add a heater to the back
of the house on the roof to melt snow and prevent ice dams. But so many
trees went down in back (into the woods) that there is more sun there....
Huh? Why would he object to heat pumps or especially solatubes??
There's a solatube in my inlaw's house down in Tennessee, it's
fantastic, looks like the light is on in that (formerly) dark kitchen
all day long.
