It's been unusually cold here this past week with overnight lows below 0 degrees and highs in the single digits. We've also had a good bit of snow.

My plan to use excess solar power to keep the utility room above freezing was still not working very well and I don't think it would have been enough to deal with temperatures below zero in any case. So I made an emergency trip to the cabin last Wednesday and moved a small propane heater I had in the mini-cabin over to the utility room. It keeps the room plenty warm. In fact, on the lowest thermostat setting it stays about 70 deg. in the room. I wish I could set it colder.
