Lo and behold it rained earlier this week. Things were looking bad. The house was cold, and Roomie and I discovered how really ineffectual our fireplace is. As in it only radiates heat an inch away. Fun!
Then came the discovery: CENTRAL HEAT!!!!! We don’t have central air which I don’t mind – it doesn’t get hot enough for that. But central heat is the best!!!!!! It’s saved our touche.
