I have an electric furnace.  In the past, when the power has gone out, I use the fireplace in the living room to keep that area of the house warm, and we all sleep in that area.  It is a nice, big room in the house and works well enough.


I'm not worried about sleeping. I have no heat in my room, by choice. There is a heat vent, but it hasn't been opened as long as I've lived here. I prefer a cold room for sleeping. I have plenty of blankets and I wear surplus thermals for pyjamas, so I'm comfortable. Having lived in Alberta, and having been homeless there for awhile, I know how to dress for cold weather. I stay comfortable, even sitting at my desk in my room.

The DW is another matter entirely, however. She has a severe case of seasonal affective disorder (SAD). She hates winter with a purple passion, and the extreme cold just makes it worse. The only bright spot is that her position at the Post Office is technically 'temporary'. She's been there eight years, but every year she's 'fired' for five days and then 'rehired'. She doesn't even turn in the keys to her office. The 'firing' took place on Saturday, so she's off all week, going back to work a week from today. It doesn't help much, but at least she doesn't have to go anywhere. We have plenty of food in the house. We could probably survive a couple of months with what we have. It might be boring, but healthy. If we absolutely do need something, I can get properly dressed and walk to the store.
