There are still comments trickling in on the TV news website from our 15 seconds of confused quasi-fame. J. forwarded this excerpt from one to me today:
“…What is bad about this cold house story is that it is highly recommended that you leave your house if it gets 55 or below it is a safety precaution for many reasons.”
This made us laugh pretty hard. Ha! Ha! we laughed. What the “many reasons” are that one should “leave your house” if it gets below 55º (13ºC), we have no idea. Even funnier is the idea of running out of the house as a “safety precaution” to save our lives from the cold, only to wind up outside in the driveway where it’s 45 degrees colder still.
I’m here to tell you that we’ve been sleeping in a bedroom that is BELOW 50 DEGREES for weeks now, and there have been no discernible adverse health effects, except that Max the Cat has taken to sleeping directly on top of me, which left me feeling a bit sore this morning.
