Our Frozen Windows



These are our windows upstairs in our master's bedroom covered with ice and I can barely see the outside. This photo is the upper part of the window. It has been very cold since Monday and most of the schools were closed until today. I am glad that my kids are staying home because we were all sick with cold and fever. I don't want them or me to go anywhere. They said it has been  the coldest days of this year  where the temperature  is below zero and the windchill is -31 to -40°F and the coldest since 1996 . We were told to stay home and keep warm because we will get frostbite on the exposed skin and the worst case is hypothermia. The frozen window is due to the humidity inside the house and the lesser ice you see means the window is sealed up properly. Humidity inside the house is good as long as it is not too much. Too much humidity will give you a problem with mold.



Another photo of the lower part of our window, not fully covered because it is closer to our heater. We went to Walmart last night and my nose felt like burning or cracking due to coldness. There were few people shopping and few cars running on the street. We would have stayed home if we didn't need water for our humidifier. My son's school will resume their classes tomorrow and I hope my kids will feel better.


If you live in Midwest I hope you all keep yourself warm.

  9. I hear you mommy. We traveled for two days a week ago and it was not pleasant at all. My husband had to stop to clean up the windshield because it was covered in ice. Some vehicles had to drive slow until they can find a place to stop to clean up the icey windshields as well. The wind was blowing hard and in some parts it was snow to the point where it was zero visibility. It was so cold that if you don't cover up, it hurts. Oh dear! I hope things are doing well at your place. Take care and stay warm and safe.

  10. frozen windows are fun and sometimes annoying, cause it will block you from seeing what's outside. due to the cold weather we also experience some frozen windows at the house too.
