Freeze Yer Buns Off

Yep it’s that time of year again!
So who is in this with me this year!

I am pledging 63/56. How low can you go?

Do you have to submit your electric bills to prove you did it? I like the concept of the contest, but it seems as tho' anyone could say anything about where their thermostat stayed during the cold months.

Our thermostat stays on a set timer. It is at 55 at night [any lower and the pipes freese] but warms up to 68 by 7 am when we are up. Some days I will go as high as 70 or 72 because of my condition I can't seem to get warm. We did disconnect our gas fireplace [saved us so much money just for the pilot light alone] and we do layer our clothing, sleep with down duvets, etc. And we stay out of the basement during the winter months because it never gets warm down there. [It is also where the fireplace we no longer use is]. hee

Good luck. I don't know how many floors you are heating, but we have a hard time keeping the middle floor close to comfortable while the bedrooms aren't saunas. :) Heat rises realllllllly well in our house.

Not I! I lived like this for 15 years and now have propane heat and am glad to be warm! I work outdoors on our farm in -40F and get sweaty and the last thing I want to do is come into a cold house.

Have fun with it though. Been there done that.
