Today the ice is melting off the trees and fences from the last cold spell, but there is another one coming. Fuel costs keep rising. We supplement with the wood stove, but that sure doesn't affect the living room or bedrooms. DH keeps moving the thermostat down to 55. At that temperature I either go into hibernation mode or seek errands so I can have a warm car for shelter. How about the others in the cold areas? Are you living in Carharts and boots in the house, permanently hunkered by the stove?
