    it's 70 in the house and i'm about to turn on my heat for the first time since last winter. it's just a tiny bit chilly. my canadian blood has been thinned by the az desert.

    what temp does your house have to get to before you turn it on?

    :omg: 70?!?!

    Oh, good Lord, you'd die here! :rolleyes:

    My whiny husband finally demanded I turn it on last week when the house was 52. What a baby! So now, I keep it off all day, and turn it on before he gets home. It's a very toasty 68 in here right now. :)

    I don't.

    If I get cold I have a fire or I throw on a sweatshirt....I'm a man.....electric heat is for pussies.

    p.s. I live in Wisconsin.

    I've had the space heater on/off for weeks now. I'll turn on the central heating when the space heater can no longer keep it 66-68 , or so.

    I don't think I'll ever marry. I wouldn't want to put anyone through that.

    We could snuggle by the fire though......and by snuggle I mean have sex.

    I wear shorts year round.....only have pants for work and court.

    I also sleep with my windows open in the middle of winter.

    I love the cold.

    I keep my house really cold. In the upper 50's when I'm by myself. My girl likes it warm. When she's here it goes up to 70.
