As we move toward energy efficiency, there are some things we may miss. I have one hopelessly inefficient window. It was donated by a friend when I built the house. I was happy to use it, both for the memories and the hundreds of dollars I saved.

It's the only window in the house which allows frost to form. I'm a little nostalgic that my grandchildren may never wake up to this magic on the window.

Old-fashioned windows have some advantages. With a wooden storm window, you can have insulation from the big space between the storm and the interior window, yet still have frost from the moisture trapped between.

Eventually I'm hoping to upgrade my windows, but it'll be cleaning up the old windows and replacing the storms with new wooden storms.
