Damn, even with all of the heat in my apartment cranked up since I got home last night it is just hitting 69F in here. (Partly my fault, I STILL haven't finished winterizing this place so there are still drafts.) I'm visiting my parents in Jupiter, FL 2/7-2/15. I kind of wish that was now so I would be out of this bitter cold. :-) Though I'm kind of worried that it might be this cold while I'm away. I don't want to leave the heat on for a week and several of my friends have been reporting their pipes freezing. I'm kind of happy that I've been letting my cold water trickle (at my landlord's suggestion) after reading those reports.

I am: cold cold

You don't have to leave the heat on high, but leaving it set to 45 or 50 isn't a bad idea. Keeps everything not frozen, theoretically. That's what my parents do in Colorado.

The heat in my apartment is binary. :-) No thermostat. The main heat is a gas burner in the kitchen which has a knob that goes from 'Low' (a lot of heat) to High (a hell of a lot of heat). There is suplimental heat in the living room and bedroom - electric baseboard. It has knobs, and appears to turn itself on and off depending on how they're set. But they have no labels at all (maybe under all the paint) and sometimes even when all the way 'off' one'll come on anyway, etc.

If I had a real thermostat I'd just turn it down, yeah.

Now there's a useful way to heat an apartment... *sigh* No more brilliant ideas from me.
