    If it's any consolation, it was a cold windy day here yesterday as well... and that was with the sun out!!! (Today's a little different... a lovely 69 degrees (converted it to fahrenheit for the non celsius people)

    so, the books have arrived aye... that's a surprise... I think I was telling you that it was going to take a whole week to get there so guess that wasn't bad at all then...

    glad you like your 'nerdy' book...

    Diane, I'm taking this sort of on face value.

    You can buy kits to winterize windows that use a double-sided sticky tape to hold a loosely fitted sheet of thick...Saran Wrap, essentially... to the tape. They cover not just the window, but the whole window frame, where you typically get the drafts. You hold a blow dryer to it and it does a shrink wrap thing to form a nice tight inner window. If done properly, it's hard to see any difference, and it really cuts down on the drafts.

    From a grower's note, it takes that windowsill out of play. But plant stands in front don't care.

    Anyway, it's my winter ritual. And with the clock change tonight - winter is upon us!
