    I've been thinking how nice a white Christmas must be, but that's insanely cold. Hope everything does ok Jon. Maybe if you get in there, you should grab the most precious plants and put 'em back in the basement?

    Jon, have you been able to figure out how much your heating bill is for your g.h. during the winter? I wonder how much the triple wall will save you each year. I'm sure it will pay for itself in a few years and will be worth the effort.

    The heating bill was about $200-250/month last year. I think the triple wall could easily cut that by $50/month. I mean, I already have the polycarbonate. It's just a matter of me getting off my lazy butt and installing it. It will only take two hours or so.

    Well I dunno how you can stand to live in such a terrible place. Me, I don't wanna go outside and work (any excuse is good for that, lol) if it isn't in the 60's.

    Bring what pants. What pants are we talking about, are they Karen's pants? Why does Jon have a pair of Karen's pants? Are they trouser pants or are they, you know, another type of pants?

    Inquiring minds...
