It's been below freezing for several days now, a rare occurence here in Eugene.

So much for global warming!

Lowes or any local hardware store would have them...

Oh, hells no. I don't remember where I got mine, but I'm sure you can find them at any store that sells electric heaters -- Target, Home Depot, etc. They're just little heaters with a fan, but they have a ceramic disk thingie inside that distinguishes them from the more old-fashioned ones with the glowing coils. The term "ceramic" refers to what's inside them; on the outside they're just a metal box. They are better than the coil type ones both by being more efficient and by being far less of a fire hazard.

Mine is at least 15 years old. It's about a 1-foot cube or so, and if I stick it in a bedroom at night it'll keep the whole room warm on the coldest of nights. I got it when I lived in a drafty in-law apartment in San Francisco with no central heating.

Edit: x-post w/Ding and Smilin.

The one I have at work is at least that old. Boss Man gave it to me when I first came to work there because the A/C has always been wonky. (I have been known to have the heater on at my feet in the middle of a summer heat wave.)

If I could find one just like that--or bigger--I would be a verruh happy camper, indeed.

I'm sorry.

It's now a nice 62 inside though. I spent yesterday morning with the electrician and last night with the Heating guy. It's amazing the feeling of relief you get with a working heating system.
Thanks, I did have three electric heaters running, a ceramic one, an oil coil one and a fancy one that my brother-in-law gave us. With good insulation (both the heater guy and the electrician complemented us on our insulation, apparently we have a good "envelope") and those three heaters, we were able to keep the house up to 52.
So no frozen pipes or anything.
Although I didn't pull my cabbages and they are perfectly frozen outside. I guess they will make good compost.

Yesterday our gas logs in the fireplace wouldn't stay lit, so I finally broke down and called the neighbor who runs a heating & cooling business. They installed my outside air conditioner unit summer before last. While waiting on them, I dismantled the fireplace logs and found the pilot thermocouple probe carboned up (burnt). I sanded some of the carbon off with emery cloth and put it back together. The pilot has stayed lit ever since. The technician did virtually the same thing to the furnace. The thermocouple switch that tells the furnace computer that the fire is lit was corroded. He cleaned it up with a file and reinstalled. Now it works. No charge. It might help that we're keeping the neighbor's horses in our pasture for free.

Sounds like the least they could do!

My husband tried that on our furnace, but it wasn't grounded and the whole circuit board was fried.

Well, not too bad here, 6F with a windchill of -15, but I've been out in it and it wasn't awful, sunny and crisp. As long as I keep something over my face, I'm good with it.
And I had long undies on, of course.

No Moon, no stars, no wind either.

It's not raining - I guess that means a warmish night :)

You think this is cold? Have you been to upstate New York?
Radio said 31 with wind chill of 21. At least it's :sun: sunneh. Either way, I'm indoors, so whatever.

Tomorrow's supposed to be colder, with :intherain: rain and sleet.

:meh:

Took an hour to properly defrost my truck this morning.

And it was so cold this morning, it hurt like hell walking from the parking lot to my work trailor.

At least it's sunny and not raining/snowing.....(yet)
