Castle Frostbite needs no air conditioning.
Daytime temperatures in the Upper Valley are in the high 70s and low 80s right now. Around the castle, it’s generally a few degrees cooler still, because we’re sitting mostly in the shade of the surrounding trees. Nighttime temps are in the low 50s, dipping into the 40s on occasion.
The summers and falls are perfect around here, and more than make up for the long and cold winters. Soon enough, I’ll be shoveling snow again, but for right now, I’m enjoying the benefits of our location in the upper reaches of Cryogenica. Besides, we’re facing the coming winter with a new roof and a new pellet stove, so that should take a big bite out of my overall workload.
Now I just need a paved driveway, a DSL connection, and my own wine cellar, and the place will be perfect. I figure another fifty grand should do it, tops.
