True about people in other climates. I think in a very cold climate people spend a lot of time and attention to protecting their bodies when they go out, and conserving heat indoors.
In our temperate climates we get a bit lazy, i think.
I am trying to pay more attention to everything that involves saving money and decreasing stress. Being warm this winter will involve spending money (ie - propane and electric from the blower), so i want to save as much money as possible. And I HAVE to be warm to be peaceful. I get cold really quickly and stay cold.
So I am thinking about exploring easy solutions that people have used through millenia. I don't have a fireplace or woodstove in here, so that is not an option.
How do different people's houses fare in the winter? Do people deal with drafts, make a lot of fires, cover up all your windows with plastic or heavy drapes, keep the heat turned up high, or just wear sweaters and hats indoors?
