Okay, so I find myself hibernating this cold snap away. Oddly enough it has been saving me on resources . . . so there is that.
Essentially what I have been doing is just not heating the house during the week . . . in this sub -20C cold snap. Here’s why.
Everything in the house is not just frozen but in a deep freeze, so at least none of my food will spoil J
Anyways, what I have been doing is chaining in and out of my cold weather getup at work. That way I change in a warm environment and not in the frozen house.
I will move the house to my evening parking spot, have my dinner, relax for a bit with a cup of herbal tea as I listen to a bit of radio.
After that, I just turn in, as in tuck into my sleeping bag. I can still do some stuff or even listen to the radio if I want (I have a remote.) All from the warmth of my sleeping bag.
In the mornings I don’t get up when I used to, nope, I stay in bed until I have to get up to get my morning rolling. Other than that I am hibernating this cold snap away.
In the end, all I really need to do is heat me, myself, my body and not the rest of the house. So far it is working and I will see how things go in the future.
I will admit that I am taking a cold-snap break by running away from the cold for the weekend by going to the hills and my Very-Western Home (Banff.)
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
