The last couple nights were brutally cold for the first time this season. Those of us that had fought leaving the furnace on were finally forced to pick the temperature we like and leave the thermostat alone. What is your ideal temperature for the house during the winter?

When I went to turn the furnace on this weekend I ran into a bit of a problem. The stinkin' thing didn't want to work anymore! Perfect timing, right when it was supposed to start getting extremely cold. So, I called the landlord, and no one could come until today (Monday), so needless to say, I had a chilly weekend. Now instead of setting that thing at 65 like I was planning, It will most likely be closer to 80 just to thaw me out over the next few days.
