Mae, glad you are doing OK, won't say good since power is not fully restored. I know there are many people who don't understand the big deal, but those tend to be northerners who don't understand that homes in the south are made to keep the cool but not really to heat the home. Even if a person did have heaters, they would not turn on. Fireplaces would be the best I guess.
I have seen many ignorant posts on facebook that Texas only got a little snow. I usually stomp on those right away with some knowledge that down south, there are not plows, salters side walk plows available to clear the snow, driving is hard as snow tires are not usually needed. I am glad temperatures will be warming up but you all still need power. Thinking of all the people without power.
My apartment has drafty windows but I have fleece pants, hoodie and such if the wind comes through. I also have a heater and blanket as well. Never stay super cold and it is not cold unless the wind is howling. I am more prepared to deal with the cold. For me, I prefer cold to hot weather. Ideally, it would be nice if sidewalks were clear, but really cold and sunny. That is my favourite.
I am going to walk today, nowhere to go particularly. Just want to move my body more, take out garbage, I let it pile up and the boxes are broken down but adding up. I finally broke down the boxes that my dryer and spin dryer came in, they were HUGE. Sawed them in half practically with my box cutter and now the one corner in the living room is full. I do keep a box for broken down boxes to live in until I get the garbage but had a lot of Amazon at the same time.
I am also pleased that my clip on washer that goes on my 5 gallon bucket was able to wash a small throw blanket. Not bad for a 120 dollar machine. Just a back up to the replace twin tub.
