Self-Warming

Over 48 hours with no fire, and yet it’s 56º in the kitchen.  In fact today the house actually got warmer (5º) all by itself , which I think hasn’t happened since late October.  The snow is almost (not quite) gone, and the muck and grime begins.

I had this idea the other day about a sort of kotatsu that would be build around a big worm composter bin.  Not that we really produce enough veggie scraps to actually heat the house, no matter what way they are decomposed.

    If you had opened all the windows and doors, the house probably would have warmed by 20 degrees today… I even had the doors open at our not-so-cold house that was 60 degrees when I got home.

    Perhaps. I would also have come home to find all the cats missing, and possibly also the computer, stereo, lawnmower…

    A problem of balancing priorities! Stuff or warmth! Soon to be a more common dilemma!

    Quick note: the blogroll link to Peak Oil Blues is out of date. Cyberaliens ate the old one so I had to move to http://www.peakoilblues.org/blog
    .com became .org.

    Perhaps not worth fixing, but I figured I’d tell you anyway. The link does redirect…
