    Crap, that is pretty close to what I set the thermometer to at night.

    It is called PJs and Blankets at my house.

    Sounds like a good excuse to put on an Iowa State Sweatshirt, and thow another Herky stuffed animal in the fireplace.

    Do Eskimos get arrested for child endangerment when they put out the fire in their igloo??

    Re: Attention cheapskate dad's - don't turn down the heat too far

    It wasn't that he turned the thermostat down, its that he shut down the utility to the house because he was mad at his baby-momma. Without a doubt the house would be getting colder. IMO they should arrest him, then punch him in the face a few times and tell him to grow up and take a little responsibility for his child.

    Re: Attention cheapskate dad's - don't turn down the heat too far

    My question is how did they even keep the temp up to 55? With it being that cold out and no power for two days, I would think it would have been even colder in that house.

    I have that dad thermostat radar. When that thing goes over 72 degrees somehow I know it immediately and track down the culprit.

    I keep my house set at a balmy 64, too cold? Get a blanket. My basement is finished but not heated, it gets damn cold down here, I usually use an electric blanket when I'm down here at night.
