I woke up this morning to a frightful chill in the house that tells me that I need to prepare for the cold temperatures that are coming. I usually have four areas where I put plastic over windows because they are just single paned and the main one is in the kitchen which is big and you can feel the cold air coming in. Bring out the blankets and electric heater for TV watching in the living room so I can keep the thermostat down. The electric heater is a new addition to the living room because it is also big and difficult to keep at a steady temp. I put up heavier drapes too. I read somewhere that heat is drawn toward cold areas and even though there are storm windows they still get cold so I figure why not? Getting these tasks done is routine for me every fall.
