Ya'll are making me feel really guilty! We live in NH. We have a passive solar berm house. The whole front of the house is windows facing south. If the sun is shining it's 80-85 in here. On cloudy days or at night we have a wood burning stove. Our house is small (1100 sq feet) and we're always toasty warm. 70-75 with the stove going. We use about 2-3 cords of wood a year. It's AWESOME! I'm really thin and cold blooded and don't do well with cold at all. I have a really hard time going to peoples' houses that are in the 60's, I freeze. I'm so glad that the kids and I are so warm. 50's would kill me!

: There are lots of people in Oklahoma right now with no power and no prospect of power for up to a week from now. We had a giant ice storm that destroyed trees all over town (here's my backyard) and knocked the power out. All the hotels are booked and lots of people are staying with family and friends. Many people are staying at home though, with lots of blankets and layers of clothes. And it's getting down in the 20s and 30s here! So I feel like a wimp in that I am uncomfortable if the temp is below 65 inside.

Wow! That's a lot of ice! What part of OK are you in?

To the PP - I couldn't live with it that cold. I freeze when we have our thermostat on 64. : (but I am in Texas where it is not usually very cold in the winter)
