Years ago we put a house key under the heavy concrete drain at the end of of our house. One day some local kids knocked on our door, told us they had found our house key and handed it to us. After that we carefully consider where we will hid a key because most places we might consider have already been thought of as hiding places by SOMEONE interested in our chosen hiding places. You have to be truly original in your selections.
My senior mind relates to that statement, Mary. We now have a small file box to help us solve that problem. When one of us places something in a location that we might not remember or fail to tell the other, we just look in the box for a card with the title of whatever it is we are searching for. You would be amazed how many times we have used that file box to find things.

Try keeping one in some outbuilding where it wouldn't be obvious. If you have a barn or chicken house or utility shed where tools and stuff like tillers, mowers, etc. there are dozens of places you could hide it. We once kept one in the bottom of a horse stall manger. You really had to dig for it. If we left and couldn't get ahold of the children to tell them where the key would be we would leave a note something like: Caleb has the key at his house. That meant the key was in the manger in that horse's stall. Or Penny has the key. That meant the key was in the nest of the hen who was sitting on some eggs. Only the family knew who Penny was. Or Caleb unless you really knew us pretty well.
Excellent ideas, Leaflady. We have such a place where all of our keys and my daughter's (who lives directly behind us) reside. Things are so cluttered and junky there that nobody in their right minds would even consider looking anywhere nearby. Since I have lots of those junky places, it would be like looking for a tiny needle in a huge haystack.
Oh, very, very few. On average I would say 3 nights, without checking any data. The city has warmed up so much because of all the asphalt and cement that have been added in the last 30 years, that many sections of down town never reach freezing. It's just on the out skirts we can still have chill problems. Believe it or not there is still area's with farm fields, although far and few in between.
