restoman: (Winter house)
Yesterday was miserably cold, with the temperature never getting above zero, but this morning was brutally cold. The temperature at Syracuse's airport was 20 degrees below zero (-28 C), and that wasn't taking the wind chill effect into account. In spite of the cold, I drove to a stamp show. I didn't stay long. Attendance at the show was sparse. Many people, both buyers and dealers stayed home because of the bitter cold.

The pipes froze in 3 of the apartments that I rent out. John, Mark and I spent some time trying to thaw out pipes with a heat gun, with only mixed success. Hopefully, tomorrow's predicted warmer weather will help thaw the pipes that we couldn't.

The clear air and bright sun made for good picture taking, but I didn't want to be outside any longer than necessary.

This is the house across the street from mine. We restored it 2 years ago.

This house is also across the street from mine. It was built in 1870 and has wonderful carved details on the front doors.

Josh pets Lily, as she takes a momentary break from her game of "Bathmat".
