I don't understand the cold in America
Despite global warming we are going through a cold snap (it would be even colder if Cass stopped driving his car).
That aside, it got me thinking. It's 26 degrees in DC right now and my house is snug....just. The double glazing is doing its thing and the 16 inches of insulation in the roof seems to be working.
But my house is still pretty loose, despite all the work I have done on it to make it more energy efficient. I can't imagine what it would be like in here if it were zero degrees outside or even minus 20 degrees.
So, are people that live in parts of America where it routinely gets down into the minus temperatures just cold or do they have tricks to keep their houses warm which the rest of us have not caught on to yet, or just don't need?
Ian , these are what you need....
Being from England I doubt you know
what these are.....
these are testicle warmers,
you just tuck them into that wool pouch
first thing in the morning and you stay
warm all day long out in bitter cold temps..
ian, if it gets too cold over on teh
east coast for you, and you want a pair,
let me know....
these shown here are extra small ,
and should fit you well
