You know it's cold when...

...I ignore the dishwasher to wash dishes by hand just so I can warm up a little bit. The windchill factor is -49 C today (-56 F). I can feel the wind blowing through my house. I am wearing a long-sleeved t-shirt with a thick knitted turtleneck on top and woolen socks. My hands are blocks of ice. The new bungalow with properly sealed windows and insulated doors is looking really tempting right now!!

make sure you visit it on a cold windy day and stand by the windows. We have new gut rehab and STILL have draft issues and a complete lack of insulation around our windows. Of course people in canada may be smarter so they wouldn't leave the area around a window (a SOUTH facing window at that) uninsulated.
