Warm Sweater Wednesday

We had snow flurries here yesterday. There was no accumulation and we had at least 50 flakes that fell!! I felt like a kid watching it snow. I even called my husband to tell him that it was snowing while I was driving. Tonight's forecast: Clear, with a low around 16. *shiver* All of our kitty cats are snuggled inside tonight. I made the boys wear pajamas (which they didn't want to do! They like to be like their daddy and sleep in their boxers! Well, that's more information than you wanted, isn't it?!!!)


Isn't this a cute picture? Click on it to take you to the site where it is sold. Today is Warm Sweater Wednesday. "Try turning down the thermostat 5 to 10 degrees at night, and then turn it up again in the morning when the coffee is brewing. If you can get used to that, you’ll save 5 to 10 percent of your heating bill. Once common myth is that when you reduce the thermostat for only a few hours it will take more heat to bring your home back up to the desired temperature. This is not so. You will save money and fuel because your heating system will not have to keep your home so warm. You will use less energy overall even when you warm up your house from a cooler temperature." Adapted from 547 Ways to be Fuel Smart, by Roger Albright. I am convinced that a cooler house makes for healthier people.
