Based on what we saw yesterday, we want to make a recommendation – especially to people with wifi thermostats in seasonal homes:
If we have severe weather coming, we strongly recommend putting the temp up to 75 until the weather front has passed. This is to keep outside-wall pipes from freezing (if the house is not drained for the winter), and to give your house a temp boost in case you lost power there – and many people did end up losing power on the Cape last evening.
We got about a foot of snow here. Hard, driving winds during the storm.
