    Tell that to my thermometer here in Pennsylvania😉 it was 5 degrees F this morning, I thought it was supposed to warm up but NOOOO, my dishwasher is frozen, and I have to hook up a 5000 btu heater in the vestibule to warm the toilet drain pipes because THEY froze. If we get some extra money I have to invest in some serious insulation, we did the outside of the house but the basement still has extremely cold air infiltrating somewhere, freezing pipes and creating a lot of havoc. We have a small bathroom on the far corner of the house and just the other day a pipe froze and full pressure water went into the basement crawl space, a couple of years ago I added a shut off valve so I was able to stop the flow but I don't want to fix the pipes till the cold spell is over otherwise I will be in the same dam boat next freeze. This 'polar vortex' thing really sucks. And we got it mild compared to Chicago and that area.

    You know, I saw some movie where the good guys hid out from the bad guys in the belly of a dead moose. I can't IMAGINE what that must have smelled like or felt like.
    Nearest I got to that was my time as a 14 YO in Anchorage, went to East Anchorage HS and volunteered to the Salvation Army and we went out one fine day where a moose got smashed by a semi truck. There was a LOT of blood....
    When they cut it open, they were rendering down the meat for the Salvation Army food lines and I saw the inside, a large mass of it literally pulverized, almost powered meat inside that poor beast.

    But the salvation army had moose burgers for a month or two😉

    You should light your house on fire. That’ll warm it up.

    But then there's the "insurance" debacle. "So sir, exactly what happened? Is that an accelerant I smell?"

    Keep your water running at a slight trickle during these times. That will protect you from freezing up. If your pipes freeze and burst your in for a hell of an expensive fix.

    If he stays in it is also a long time solution.
