    Yeah, we're trying to conserve on energy so we turned down the heat.

    Guess we overdid it a bit.

    We had a low temperature of about 22°F (-5.6°C) this morning. It is supposed to be between 20-30°F (-6 to -1°C) overnight for the next 3 or 4 days.

    We were forecast to go down to 18F last night. I've had to run the heater all week. I've probably lost all of my peaches and the few pears.

    Luckily, all the fruit trees and berry bushes here are still in dormancy, so the recent blizzard and forecast low temps shouldn't have any negative impact on us. I have had to put out a LOT of seeds every day for the birds, though. The warm weather lured the finches and juncos north and with the ground covered by 1-1/2 feet of new snow, they're relying on me for food. At any given time, there may be 50-100 birds swarming around the feeders - mostly goldfinches.
