NH had readings from -10 to -20 degrees last night. Some places in northern NH were 30 below!! Mt. Washington had a wind chill of -50!!

2 degrees last night in Tennessee for crying out loud!

No sleep at all last night. Neither boat is "properly" winterized... SeaRay is fine with bilge heater, cabin heaters, and freshwater lines blown dry.

Formula is in a commercial drystack building. The building has a dark roof and is partially underground on 3 sides. I've been planning to move the Formula to my own warehouse for the winter, but the guy who has bene using my warehouse hasn't cleaned out enough room for me... The drystack building holds heat well, but found out last night that it was going to be COLD. Much colder than I felt comfortable. Building was locked so no way to do anything about it now..

This morning at 8am I went to check temperatures in the drystack. Temp was 28 degrees. I put a thermometer probe up the drainplug hole of my boat (which is on the "second" level of the 3-level drystack). Temp in my bilge was 31.2 degrees. I'm guessing it may have been a couple of degrees colder at the worst this morning (before the sun came up). Today is warmer with strong sunshine, and Sunday is mid-30s. If damage was oging to occur, ot would have already happened. I didn't open the hatches to look...

I guess if they are cracked, I'll be in the market for blocks and coolers...
