We had record-breaking cold here in NH over the weekend.

My opens in a new windowDavis weather station sensor up on top of my garage roof transmitted to the interior dashboard panel that it was only -12F on Sunday morning.

Yes, I know it was colder for some, but it was D * * * cold here. So cold that my boiler could not keep up.

Kathy was complaining, and rightfully so, because the house was chilly.

I decided to tape a video that explains why a house is cold when the heat is on.

"Tim, everyone knows why. Tisk tisk."

Well smartypants, I'll bet you don't know it all.

As Dr. Kenneth Caster would say to me before handing me one of my Historical Geology tests, "Today we're going to test the DEPTHS of your ignorance."

Yes, he did say that. I loved him. He was one of the most influential professors of my college career. Another one being Dr. John Alexander, my physical chemistry lab teacher.

Oh and for all you who live where it's hot and often HUMID, I've got a super tip in the video for you if you think getting a BIG air conditioner will keep you comfortable.

Install a New Window in an Old Wall Video Series

I uploaded four new videos over the past few days.

The chronicle the saga of me putting in the window up in my man cave.

Have you ever wanted to cut a new window or door into an existing frame wall? I show you how it's done.

If I had a super power, it would be to look good on video. When I edit my videos I shake my head at my messed up hair, sweat pouring off me, sawdust on my face and clothes and my unrehearsed lines.

I sure hope the four videos make sense to you!

Here are the FOUR links to the videos:
