Place Your Bets

Record cold is headed to the East Coast tomorrow night, and the apartment is already down to 55 degrees. Will I turn on the heat?

I predict no.

    Long-term, I confidently predict that reality will defeat the fraudsters who perhaps innocently joined frightened leaders decision to rule the world by deceit.

  4. For sleeping? Probably not, if you have anything like our family’s left-right zip -25 F Tetons (I got them a few years back to prepare for an arctic blast in the mountains with the heating out).

    For daytime hours, at what approximate temperatures do the neighbors below, above or next to yours keep their apartments and do you have computer typing gloves?

    You will when you have to scrape your frozen breath off your monitor screen.

    Have a stationary bike to help you stay warm?

    It’s not so much the sleeping in 58 degree bedroom, I kind of like it. It’s the waking up in it that sucks. If this is a colder than normal Winter I’ll be out of firewood before February.

    I turn down the furnace at night, and run a little space heater in the master. We’re only down to freezing here in the NW. The house only cools 8 degrees or so overnight.

    I just bopped myself in the head and had a V-8 moment. I need to invent a solar space heater tonight.

    Living in cold damp houses has health effects and encourages fungus growth.

    I did fire up the Tektronix 547 (the Kill-A-Watt EZ indicates it burns a _true_ 500W of ready kilowatt) this morning … house was down to 60 deg F and just a little chilly for me … air temp reporting at 22 deg F from the local aerodrome …

    Poor Easterners. Here in the “warm Southwest” of central Arizona it was a balmy 26° F this morning, and the temperature in the house never got below 55°.

    Fill the room with CO2 and you won’t need the bag. Your low energy use should help keep the rates down so I can use more heat having just experience a new record low and record high minimum in the high desert.

    Why not use a bit of heat? What’s the point?
