The main thing that keeps me going on days like this is reminding myself that I hate extreme high temperatures even more. As vile as this shit is, I'll take it over 100 and high humidity every time. You can protect yourself against the cold. All you can do when it's hot like that is suffer.
This is absolutely correct. I'll take cold weather over extreme heat any day.

Utilities in Minnesota are calling on residents to turn down their thermostats due to a rise in demand for natural gas as extreme cold makes its way across the United States.

Xcel and Centerpoint Energy have each recommended reducing heat through at least Tuesday, noting that spot prices for natural gas are spiking due to supply and demand during the cold weather, and excessive usage could land customers with much higher costs.

Centerpoint recommends lowering thermostats to 65 degrees during the day when home and lowering it an additional five degrees when asleep or away. Xcel asks thermostats to be set from 65 to 70 degrees while home and 58 degrees when away.

The reduction could help limit the impact of higher prices on customers' bills, with turning down the heat in your home by 1 degree resulting in around 3% savings on your gas costs.

Xcel says for its customers, the increase in natural gas prices is "significant smaller" than the massive spike experienced during Winter Storm Uri in 2021.



Do I set my furnace lower and run my gas fireplace more or vice versa?

Or you could just go sleep in your nice warm electric car.

Good luck sleeping when the thermostat is at 60. Unless you're a White Walker or a pregnant woman, it will be miserable.

I wouldn't exactly like it, but as long as I've got enough blankets I'd be fine.

Hell, I'd be perfectly happy living in a place where the temperature never got above 60.

My garage isn't heated. It's polar bear comfy in there at 11 degrees, according to the car.

Same here. Mine was 0 this morning. It was -11 outside.

Still, having any sort of garage is wonderful. I have zero fond memories of parking my car outside in this shit.

Before I lived here I was in Chicago, digging out spots in the street and then marking them as my own with random bits of crap. That really sucked, but people mostly respected it.

Speaking of unheated garages, mine is attached but on the north side. It sucks because I would store liquids and they would freeze thus make them unuseable. I would have to move them inside over the winter.

We got a new garage door due to hail and got an insulated one. That made a big difference. I don't know if you could do a DYI slapping up foam boards (glue) in the door panels??

This last fall, I added more insulation in the crawl space above the garage (r13) to overlay the existing insulation.

It just got below freezing this last weekend. I am in NE KS.

Thinking these might be a simple band aide.

It was kind of an unwritten code that almost everybody honored. Also, people who parked in someone else's cleared spot tended to have rather unpleasant things happen to their vehicles that night.
