Blog neglect and lack of sleep

Hopefully, my blog neglect is almost over. This has been a very busy week and I'm still up putting some finishing touches on some stuff - and making sure the pipes don't freeze.
Unusually cold for this area of the country through Saturday:

We were in the old house for the last real cold weather like this. Of course, at about 1AM, when it was 7 degrees, the lights went out. That seems to be typical for this area. The power went off again a few weeks ago when it hit 15 degrees so I am not looking forward to the next couple of days. Maybe they have the kinks worked out by now?

This house is only 5 years old and I feel a draft. Shoddy construction? Nahhhhh. Don't get me started on that.

Well, that's it. It's 1:24 AM and I am heading to bed so I can get my 5 hours in. Good night!
