The price we pay for blue

So it turns out that sometimes the sky is blue in the pacific northwest in the winter.


And that there is a COST associated with these clear skies.


We’ve realized that when the skies are gray and thick with clouds, they serve as insulation.  It was so interesting to notice last winter that often the low temperature during the night and the high temperature during the day were only 10 degrees apart.  Every now and then there was only a 5 degree difference. 

But if it’s clear at night, or sunny during the day? 

Well then, all temperature bets are off.
