Thread: it got cold here all of a sudden

    Default it got cold here all of a sudden

    I turned on the dryer. It's down here in the basement, warms things up a
    bit. And I couldn't tell if my last load was cold because it was still damp
    or because it's cold... When I go up the stairs, it's literally 15 degrees
    cooler... The thought of a shower, makes me shiver.

    Maybe if I take the warm clothes upstairs on the sofa, it will warm me up...
    Plus, I will have clean clothes to wear! Bonus!

    ***
    Postscript: ....went upstairs to get some more watered down V8. Did not
    like the status of things up there... It's like Iceland. (Actually,
    Greenland... Vikings tried to fake out their population.) I better stay
    down here with the dryer a bit longer.

    my electric and gas bill was under $60 last month... I do not miss those
    $250 bills when she lived here... Damn kids would walk around bare foot,
    t-shirts.. And she'd go turn the heat up!

    Just wait until you're hauled off to the ER and have doctor bills in
    the THOUSANDS... cheapos like you deserve to freeze to death. It's
    very easy to see why your wife dumped you.

    Very strange weather. I just had the AC on over the weekend, and then
    the heat this morning.

    I can switch between heat and air in one day, and think nothing of it. If
    it's below 50 outside, I usually open windows to cool off, and possibly
    turn whole house fan on.

    Seems you're still allowing the ex to beat the crap out of you, you
    really are a wuss... why don't you tell her how you're freezing your
    ass off because of her... she'll kick her thermostate up two more
    notches just to piss you off.

    Same here. Fall is always a transition time. But I don't look to
    save the few dollars on heat if I have to suffer in a cold dank house.
    This time of year the A/C may only run some at mid day and the heat
    comes on in the evening and a couple times during the night. The
    night temperatures have been in the low 40s high 30s, it makes no
    sense to let the house temperature drop into the 50s. I keep my
    thermostat set at 70 all year. A little heat is still a whole lot
    less money than doctor bills, and illness is no fun.

    She said when she lived in Vegas: they would run the AC in the day, and the
    heat at night... (I thought: Madness-- why would any one live there?)

    I do have a couple of those oil-filled radiator heaters. Aren't they
    somewhat efficient?... Doesn't put off enough in the living room though.
    But in the bedroom, puts out more heat than the ex's ass used to... but I
    need heat in the living room... Had one in the TV room and almost set the
    house on fire. (I think it was the plug/extension cord got stuck in the
    rug.)

    At least I will be warm tonight, in bed (set up the oil radiator and
    electric blanket).. Ex says to stop talking about her ass (and boobs). She
    feels it's "inappropriate" But, that's why I married her (Even at 49,
    they still hang well on her. She sports them well. No wonder the tow truck
    driver hit on her).

    Can I not post-marriage lust once in a while? Is not post-divorce sex okay
    (once in a while)? (We did it before marriage, why not after?)

    I've been to Vegas many times throughout the year, I don't remember
    any heat on at night... Vegas is not high desert.

    >(I thought: Madness-- why would any one live there?)


    An awful lot of folks live in Vegas, many retire to Vegas... has no
    cold weather, has great food (some of the best on the planet),
    wonderful entertainment, and if you don't gamble it's relatively
    inexpensive to live there.

    Vegas isn't technically "high desert". But it does get cold in Vegas at
    night. Average night time temperatures in Dec and Jan are around 36 to
    37 degrees.... and that is pretty cold.

    It was cold this morning, but it will be 85 this afternoon, and it will
    be 90 degrees in a couple of days. I was thinking about making chili,
    but who wants to eat chili when it is 90 degrees outside? That beef will
    have to sit in the freezer for a while.

    A few nights a year that would be the Low, but it's plenty worm enough
    during day time that indoors the temperature doesn't drop much at all,
    especially since there is almost always bright sunlight all day that
    raises the temperature in homes substantially, which is why A/C is
    needed in Vegas even in winter, unless you live in a cardboard carton
    under an overpass. People who live in Vegas don't need heat, in fact
    most homes there have no central heating... many have a fireplace but
    more for ambiance, a fireplace only warms the room it's in, and in
    fact draws the heat from the rest of the house and sends it up the
    chimney, rendering the rest of the house colder than it would be
    otherwise. The back of my house faces south, it has oversize triple
    glazed windows and I have no window coverings except shades on some
    windows to cut glare on my monitor and TV (only the critters can look
    in), could be -20 outdoors during the day but on sunny days my heat
    rarely comes on, in fact it sometimes gets so warm that the A/C comes
    on, that's the signal for me to pull down a few shades. When I lived
    in LA most homes had one small gas heater in a wall, it rarely got
    used... and Vegas is a lot warmer than LA. I've been to Vegas amny
    times and during all times of the year, I don't ever remember needing
    heat, mostly it's too damned hot there, hardly anyone goes outside,
    that's why the casinos are always full day and night.

    But it's still desert. I believe her about the AC/Heat there is a large
    temp swing many days... Not sure what time of year she meant.

    Vegas is crazy... And it has the highest suicide rate of US cities. By
    twice.

    Never said I'd like to live there, Vegas would be extremly low on my
    list of places to live.... it's too hot and I don't like sand... but
    it's a great place to visit, or it used to be.

    Was sitting outside at night (with gf at Caesar's by the pool), and I start
    to notice things moving around the garbage can... cockroaches, big ugly
    ones... And they were flying!

    Like I say, I run whatever I need to maintain comfort.

    Vegas is high desert opposed to palm springs, phoenix, low desert, 4-6
    degrees warmer. If you go up to grand canyon it's really high, gets really
    cold.

    I lived in Barstow, same climate as Vegas. Coldest night, 17 degrees.
    Hottest day 117 degrees. Winter tends o be mild, but it can snow, and the
    wind chill can be horrendous. 70 mph winds at least once every spring.
    Summer, you don't do much during the day outside, average 105 degrees.
    Winter, sunny 60 degrees I absolutely love. You can lay out at the pool.
    Drive up to the mountain to ski, west of Vegas. Mt Charles.for the most
    part Vegas boring to live. I considered it once. I love to visit, but now
    days don't want to fly anywhere. Yes, I often ran the gas wall heater in
    barstow. Who wants to freeze. Rare not to run it.

    Going to 32 here forecast 30 up camp. Hope trailer does not freeze.
