I woke before 7 AM and decided to go ahead and feed the dogs.
I went to open the storm/screen door to the deck and the handle was frozen. I went to the kitchen door that leads to the side porch and its handle was also frozen. I returned to the deck door in my bedroom and after several more minutes of wiggling the handle, I grabbed the hair blow dryer, thankful I had held onto it all these years despite never needing it. After a few minutes, the door handle opened.
Five minutes later, I went to let the dogs back inside and the handle was already frozen again. I had already put the blow dryer away.
The blow dryer is not going back into the hall closet for a while.
Stay safe, everyone.
Continue to make it a great day!
