Default SO COLD

Yesterday afternoon I noticed that our heating and air conditioning unit was frozen in a block of ice, so until it is fixed we had to turn it off. It looked like this.
Last night, the temperature dropped to 28 degrees fahrenheit (-2 degrees celcius) and I could not sleep well at all. My face was super cold just from being exposed to the air inside the house, so I had to sleep completely covered by two blankets, wearing my heaviest coat in order to fall asleep. Quite the unpleasant experience.

meanwhile, -26c outside here, and doin' fine.

Hopefully you are able to get that fixed soon. In the meantime, make sure that all windows and doors are closed, and any drafts are covered up. Sounds like there may be a draft.

I live in a humid subtropical climate, so I am not used to being that cold, especially when I am about to fall asleep. We don't have a weatherstrip on our back door, I can definitely feel air coming through, that will get dealt with.

I prefer cold weather to warm weather because it is usually hot here (I normally sleep without a blanket or shirt also), but this was too much for me, especially when trying to fall asleep.

Default Re: SO COLD

I'm from MN and was used to cold as shit weather, but living in TX for a couple months has me dreading anything below freezing. Like the low today is 39 degrees and I was like, "woah that's cold"

High's 71 though. That's pretty lit

EDIT: Rapta, you should get thicker blankets. At my house my parents have these thick mf'ing blankets (they work better htan a comforter) that we use when it's cold as shit. Like my old room would have a draft but I would be fine at night and I hate being cold when i sleep

Buying a thick blanket sounds like a great idea to do just in case something happens again~

Remember, Canadians and other people from cold places: We don't realize often just how built up for cold we are. Yes it's -24 outside right now where I am, but our buildings also have good insulation, better window seals, basements and more robust heating systems to compensate.

Around here, at -24, inside will be 16 or 18 without much effort on our parts at all. In many places, US included, -24 outside would basically mean -24 inside too.

I'm visiting the office in the midwest US this week and the wind chill is supposed to hit -51 Celsius (-60 Fahrenheit) on Wednesday. So on that day specifically I would rather be in Canada than in the US.

yo wtf no joke i never heard of -51 celsius, let alone in midwest US. I though that would only ever happen in antarctica (where the coldest was -93.5 celsius, not registered by guinness world records cuz it was taken by NASA's satellite and not a thermometer). But damn, i thought my situation was pretty damn terrible.
