For Heat (And Air Conditioning, too)

4 Nov

Blackberry Messenger:
Me: Do you think it’s time to have your pilot light turned on when you’re wearing a scarf inside your house?
Ben: Yes.

Conversation with Rebekah:
Me: I need to have my gas turned on, but it’s so expensive that I have been holding out.
Rebekah: I’m in the same boat, my friend.
Me: Last night I wore velour pants, socks, a long sleeved shirt to sleep…and piled two blankets on top of my comforter.
Rebekah: Oh, I’ve got you beat. I wore a shirt, a sweatshirt, pants, socks…and had a quilt over my down comforter on the bed. And, I was still cold.

Seriously. How did people make it without central heat and air? I’m not exactly strong enough to chop wood, so I’d be pretty screwed if I had to do that to keep warm. I’m thankful as heck for the thermostat in my hallway.

    Part of my parents divorce agreement was that my dad had to provide her with cut wood during the winter for the wood-burning stove. Smart lady, my Mama…

    Electric blanket! Only way I survived the cold while in college. I lived in a house off Milledge Rd and I refused to pay $200 for a smidge of heat. I spent 2 winters with no heat at all. You won't regret it! 🙂
