How I Know It’s Two Below Zero

DECEMBER DAILY | 7

If you look our house up on Zillow, it will tell you a lot. You will find out our house 1568 sq. ft. That it was built in 1973. Zillow claims there is a one-car garage. There is now a two car garage. It is listed as having a fireplace. I wish I had a fireplace. You will find the price we paid for the house, and it’s estimated value.

However, there is one glaring fact that is not listed on Zillow. Our house still has the original 1973 single-pane windows.

Ice, ice, baby.

Every winter our windows freeze…on the inside! And, that is how I know it is below freezing outside.

Like any 40 year old, you must maintain its body. And, this old lady is worn out, and needs a face lift, stat!

Yesterday I spent 4 hours chipping away at all the ice on all eight windows, melting the ice with a hair dryer, then shrink wrapping them in Frost King Window Insulation. The house already feels warmer.

Like much of the United States, there is an Arctic Freeze here. It’s Canada’s fault. I won’t hold it against them, though. I would love to visit Canada someday.

Christmas is only two and a half weeks away. Anyone else feeling the pressure?
