You’re more apt to see me bundled up in various layers or hidden under my comfortable blanket on my bed
Thankfully the winters in my section are rather mild. The two of us rarely get snow & the lows never get below 30 degrees, even in the most severe Winter seasons. The wind chill is never an issue & there is no ice on the roads either. I guess if I had to choose a place to live by comparing my up-to-date house to all of the sites I have lived in the past, it’s no contest that I am most glad where I’m at now. I might be living incredibly far in-land & nowhere near lakes or rivers of any kind, however I love it nonetheless. When I moved down here, I had been conditioned to using central gas gas furnaces from September to early May every single year. My old house a few states north of here was incredibly cold during this stage of time each & every year. It was aggravating when you had to rely on a machine that cost so much money to run, otherwise you would freeze to death. Eventually I replaced to a gas powered gas furnace which is vastly more efficient than a typical electric gas furnace. Even still, the energy expenses were considerable when I compare them to what I’m dealing with now. I rarely run my central gas furnace, even during the most intense Winter cold snaps. You’re more apt to see me bundled up in various layers or hidden under my comfortable blanket on my bed. It just makes more sense to me to try to get by separate from needing a central gas furnace if the longest cold fronts only last a month or more than one at a time at most. Inevitably the temperature will rise again, mitigating the need for gas furnace use. I just try to get by separate from it altogether.
