Heroine

From time to time I come across a story about a person worthy of being nominated as a “hero of the cold house”.   Today’s hero, or rather heroine, is Kerry Kells–  who apparently found her Antarctic research station dorm uncomfortable, and instead spent 200-plus nights sleeping in a tent (in, yes, Antarctica).  (The story is from last spring– not sure why it just came across my radar today… perhaps she is back in her tent this season?)

Meanwhile here at the luxury cold house (with solid walls) a “seasonably cool” autumn is creeping along.  I cranked up the ol’ datalogger two weeks ago to start this season’s indoor recording– thus far the average in the living area has been 55F/12.8C.   As usual, I listen to the annual rush of stories about heating oil prices and chuckle to myself.
