I live in Texas and haven't turned it on in years. The bitter cold is much more difficult to deal with

Actually, I was bragging that I don't need it most of the time. Crossbreezes and such. It's ok. You read into things wrongly most of the time.

My ideal temp is 75. Right now it's 77 in here. I have windows open. Quite comfortable.
We've largely lost the skill set required to live off the grid. We're not nearly as capable as our grandparents and great grandparents were. It makes me wish I'd have paid closer attention to some of the things my granny tried to pass on...it didn't seem very applicable at the time.
