Default How cold was it?

How Cold Was It? (like Ed McMahon read to Johnny Carson).


It was so cold in The Villages FL that this guy's bird bath water froze overnight.

Pic taken at 8:45 this morning. We are just south of 466A between Morse & B.V.
I tried to break the ice - thinking it was just a thin freeze. It's frozen solid...

Bada bing!

You can monitor the temperature at your rental from afar?

Yes, and humidity, too, with a smart thermostat (like Nest or Ecobee).

Ain't technology grand!

It is easier to ask what you can't monitor than can.

The only things that are important to a property owner are those that could impact your property value. Like water leaks.

For the temp I received a text that the furnace was running too long. It could be a problem, in this case it was just someone who likes the home quite warm.

I checked the webcams last night and all three squares the bands were playing, so we didn't reach the cutoff of 47 degrees. Last winter there was 3 or 4 nights in January when the squares were dark. So it's not as bad as before.

I look at it this way, the cost isn't that much (to my surprise) and this gives me more data to determine how much utility choices in the home cost. I should add that I disabled the resistance "emergency" heat function which helps greatly for cost.

I have a whole house electricity monitor so I know exactly how much it costs to have a 80 degree home.

Still, I am not re-renting to them.
