Didn't you know that you can use a match to light it if the electricity is out?

I don't think that would be true about your stove. You just have to light it with a match instead of the electric igniter.
I seem to remember some people complaining that the food in the fridge spoiled because the power was off too...

The stove in my old apartment was like that, but this stove doesn't work like that. Having the power off shuts the gas flow off for safety.

Maybe not, and I certainly won't attempt to quantify it myself. I guess my point is just that it is a close enough thing that people shouldn't feel guilty if they personally enjoy it.

Temp has already dropped to 30 degrees according to my weatherbug phone app. That's an impressive drop of about 15 degrees in just 2 hours.

My car said it was 41 degrees when I made a quick trip to Waterworkes just 30 minutes ago.

Are we supposed to get more rain today?

No, they should feel guilty because I don't enjoy it.

Nope. Snow up to an inch or so later this afternoon and evening.
