................When it's starts getting cold I can sleep forever ! In fact , I let my inside temp drop down as low as it can before the furnace turns on ; so I turn the thermostat down to about 45f which means the furnace won't be activitated until around 40f . I save propane this way as well and , on mild nights here in Tx if the temp will stay above 45f I just turn the furnace off completely . My 5'ver isn't as well insulated as you rich folks with stick houses . Suppose to get down to 40f tonite so I'll sleep like a rock . , fordy:shrug:

Hmm...I hope she doesn't read this. :shrug:

I love the cool weather, I am sure it has something to do with the fact that I am now my own personal furnace LOL

The temp is set for the mid 50's during the day but DH insists on 60 for his wake up, something about getting out of the shower without freezing to the bathroom floor. I think he just being a wimp.

I'm OK as long as the room doesn't go below the mid/low 60's. I don't like heavy covers either. Our heating bills are probably higher than they should be because I keep bumping up the temp, but then we rarely get below freezing even during the coldest part of winter.

I love to sleep in the cold, but buried in blankets.

Oh yeah! I like it cold for sleeping, then snuggle under the quilts. I sleep SO much better! When it's too warm, I'm just extremely uncomfortable, I get headaches and have nightmares and just never feel rested even when I can sleep. If it's over 70 I really can't sleep much at all.

I really do like it COLD. I can make my own heat it seems.
When I first married my wife she burned me up. But i showed her that with enough covers she can stay warm and I can sleep well. now she wants it cool too.
We go from A/C to heater. We live with in 75 feet of the train tracks where they start blowing the horn so no open windows at night

With my income I have come to like sleeping when its cold I turn the heat down to 45* to save on propane, the mobile home has been winterized. I have plenty of covers they do get heavy. Some nights I end up with my pretty much grown up kids with me a cat who has to be under the covers he has sleep on one of my hands for 2 years now so my hand stays warm.
I do make sure it is 68* when the kids get up for school. Then the temp goes back down during the day Iam cold all day until I get back into bed.
