I have always enjoyed a cold room.

right now, I am in the family room getting ready to watch TV. We have the windows wide open, and everyone covered up with a blanket. The colder it gets, the more I like it.

Middle of winter, we keep the fan/airconditioner going and throw a bunch of blankets on the bed.

Is anyone else like that?

Hey, I am in N. Cal. It gets below 40 in the winter! :wink02:

Actually, I grew up in Spokane Washington. About every thrird or fourth winter, we would get a weather pattern descending from Alaska\Northern Canada.... it'd be 15, 20 below with another 10 or 15 taken off for windchill. Not too too long, but long enough to REALLY feel it. A strange feeling when you get excited to see snow because it means its getting warmer.

The temperate weather here has softened me up a little.

Come to think of it, I haven't seen snow in what, 4 years now? Dang.

Another reason I enjoy going to Pittsburgh... nice cold weather. Though its mid-November. SO not too cold yet.

I love a cold room to sleep in and pile on the blankets, I can't sleep in a warm or hot room.

I have to sometimes run my AC because it gets so warm in my apartment because of the radiator heat that it makes it uncomfortable to sleep. I've had to do it the last 2 nights even though the temp outside was in the mid-30s.

I don't really seek out a chill room on purpose, but I prefer to turn the heat down while I'm sleeping, because the blankets are warm enough, and keeping the rest of the house warm really doesn't do you any good because you're sleeping.

On the other hand, for some reason, my fiancee is always cold even if it's 75+ degrees in the house, so inevitably it ends up with her bundled up and me walking around in shorts and a T-shirt. And at night, her sleeping under two or three blankets and me lying on top of the blankets trying not to sweat to death. I really don't understand how women are so vulnerable to cold that they complain about it being cold when it actually isn't.

60 degrees at night and 80 degrees during the day is perfect. That is why people vacation in Florida during the winter.

My husband & I keep the house around 63 year round because we like it cool. During the winter we get strange comments from our neighbors because we have our windows open! I am one of the few people that LOVE the cold weather.

Did you read my whole post? I said I have radiator heat, which means steam heat from boilers. I do not have control of my heat, and when they turn those boilers on, it gets extremely warm in here. And since the boilers are still running when the temperature goes up (it's supposed to be 70 here tomorrow), it makes it even worse. Not everyone has the luxury of a thermostat.

I love the winter because it gets cold. I hate the winter because they have the heat on in public places.

We live in NC which is very temperate. We keep the house in the 60s in the cool months and in the 70s in the warm months.

To me, 45 is the perfect sleeping temp. But then, I like sleet.

Down here in "Sauna Central", AKA Central Florida, where it was 90 degrees a week ago, I kid you not, I was waiting for this latest "cold front" to come down before I went completely out of my mind. Aside from a relief from the heat, it is a relief on our electric bill-it feels good to feel the natural air moving through the house & maybe not have a 180 something dollar power bill coming...Why on Earth would you run your AC in the cool weather? You might as well throw a stack of dollar bills on the winter fire that will soon be coming. Or just send it to me....

The older I get, the less I like the cold temps outside, but there is NOTHING like sleeping at night in the late fall and winter with the bedroom windows opened a bit and snuggling under those nice warm blankets! :thumbsup:

You & me both!
I live in the land of what feels like the endless summer & when it's still 90 degrees in October a person can get to thinking that they are going to just lose it because they are so sick of the heat! It is such a wonderful thing when the cold air finally descends & it's almost like a celebration when I can open up all of the windows , air out the house & feel some natural cold air!
Some might think they would be miserable with the windows open at these temps now...80's during the day & 60's at night, but I love it, & am looking forward to more cold fronts.When I hear about the temps up in the Burgh during game time, it makes me so homesick. I miss the seasons....but I still hate freezing my ass off!

I assume you create that environment by simply walking into a room preach. :chuckle:

We sleep with the windows open all winter, no matter how cold.

Nothing like waking up to a nice piece of frosty ass in the morning. :wink02:

The apartment we just moved out of was the same way. Drove me nuts in the winter, especially at night. We'd have all the windows open and fans going pretty much 24/7 no matter how cold it was outside, and sometimes would have to run the AC on warmer fall or winter days. Thankfully we didn't have to pay for that heat that they seemed to want to waste lol.

Well then someone needs to get with the times around here, because I have never seen an apartment with radiator heat that had a thermostat.

actually i lived on the first floor and controlled the heat for all the apartments....it really gave me a God complex...:chuckle: ...everybodies comfort level was in my hands. i also had the use of the basement , so when the noisey bastards above me plucked my nerves to much, i'd punish them by waiting till they got in the shower, then i'd go in the basement and turn the hotwater valve on and off...:toofunny: ...or i'd turn the thermostat down to about 62 before i left for work...:chuckle:

I've shared some bedrooms that have been ice cold...... but um ..... that's a completely different story.:wave:

Seriously, I prefer to sleep in a room around 60 degrees.
