    First, I will be up there in May.
    Winter is "officially" in NY from the beginning of December until the end of March. Do the heaters have to be on? Yup. Kinda like the A/C being on from April until November here in Florida.
    You sure you live in NY? :) I guarantee no one will agree with the description you've given. Though you're totally correct with the taxes. They blow. We sold our house in 2012. I checked about a week ago and our taxes had gone up 77%.
    I know where you grew up in your home country. If you did in the northern part of the country, you wouldn't complain one bit about NY.

    Times like this are when we test the batteries in vehicles. Many of them will fail and it is time to buy new ones. Then, if it gets cold like this again next week, things will go better.

    Just be thankful that this tiny cool spell isn't going to be long or cold like the one in December of 1983.

    Exaggerate much?

    BTW - it's only -1 in Auburn as I type this.

    Why not sell your business and leave NY?

    It was pretty cool during the Christmas of 1990 when I was visiting friends in Williston, ND. That was the first time I had experienced cold like that.

    -15 here this morning. For extra fun, there was an explosion at one of Consumers Energy's main natural gas distribution centers yesterday, and they and the Governor want us to turn down our thermostats, or natural gas supplies may be interrupted.

    https://www.detroitnews.com/story/n...-fire-armada-natural-gas-facility/2721353002/

    "The head of Consumers, on the coldest day of the year, urged its 1.8 million customers Wednesday night to use less gas to heat their homes following the fire at one of the utility's "most significant facilities," which accounts for 64 percent of its supply."

    "The fire, she said, has affected Consumers' ability to deliver natural gas to customers statewide."
