Is it cold enough for a honey pot yet?

For those who don't know what a honey pot is, well, it's a pot. That you go to bathroom in. In the house. When you have an outhouse. And it's 46 BELOW! Yes, it's cold. Cold. Bitter. The dogs are being filtered into the house, I have to go get dog food this morning and then I'm coming home and not leaving. I'm snuggling up with the dogs and working from home. I put yet another bail of straw into the dog houses yesterday in anticipation for the forecasted 50 below temps. It's supposed to be like this all week.
Peace

When I see your pics from the Interior, I really miss the place. But NOT when it's that cold! For 35 years I always told folks I'd rather have the bitter cold than the roastingly hot. My logic was that you can always put another layer on when it's cold, but there's only so many layers you can take off when it's hot!

Hell yeah, honey pot (or, um, bucket) all the way! We've had -40 temps for over a week now and there is no end in sight! I finally bit the bullet when it hit -47 and man I love my honey pot!!!! Why was I avoiding one for so long?? I go outside enough for dog stuff, I can at least pee in warmth!
