A Cold Week

It's was a quiet week around the Wyatt household last week. It was also a week of abnormally cold temperatures. Our area of Wyoming is often cold, being at an elevation of over 6,700 feet. But last week it got down to -18 (that's -28 Celsius) a week ago today, with it being even colder in some of the surrounding areas. Throw in some of the famously stiff Wyoming wind, and it was downright chilly!

The cold temperatures made for some interesting days, as our hot-water pipe to the kitchen froze. (We could still get hot water from the bathroom, though.) It took some ingenuity and some warm air blown into our small crawlspace to get the water flowing again.

Even with the cold, it was a good week, and things warmed up toward the end of the week. (The outlook is good for continued warmer temperatures this week.) I hope things are going well in your corner of the world and that you enjoy the tips in this week's newsletter.
