Warm inside, but coooold outside!

Hello, everyone!  On New Year’s Day, we put Mallard Cove Oysters on ice to take over to our friends on Anderson Island (4 miles across the water) for a new year Christmas Tree “Untrimming” ceremony.  When we came back home we dumped out the unused ice from our ice chest onto the grass outside our greenhouse.  Well . . . it is now January 6 and that pile of ice cubes is still there!  Inside, however, and especially in front of our fireplaces roaring with seasoned wood, it is warm and cozy.
