Usually I have the heat in my house set on 55.
Yes, you read that correctly, 55.
An old house, electric baseboard heat. I usually just have to turn on the living room heater so that it’s on. Lowest possible setting. 55. And then I wear shorts for the rest of the day because it is quite hot.
Tonight, it is 20 degrees outside. I think it is a balmy 60 inside my house. And my teeth are chattering. You know how once one part of you gets cold it’s impossible to get warm? For some people it’s hands. For others, it’s feet. For me? It’s the small of my back. I will have chill bumps all over my self. And right now, that’s about the whole of it. I even turned on the bedroom baseboard heater. It’s the first time all year. Granted, the year is only 22 days old, but still. Crazy. I don’t think I used it all last winter, and probably not the winter before either.
Now, I have the heat in the living room set at 75. And I just can’t get warm!
