Winter headaches

December 11th, 2013 at 07:41 am

It was another cold night in my condo. I'm going to have to let someone know. When you can't even read in bed, because you can't take your hands out from under the covers, it's TOO COLD! I never had this problem before. I'm hoping the board hasn't taken cost-cutting measures because that could be hard to fight.

The news was all about the cold and snow this morning, but actually, it wasn't too bad. A better walk than yesterday. I voluntarily moved my car, so that snowplowing could happen, and that was the most difficult thing -- brushing the accumulated snow off the car, then finding a new place to park.

Free food! December is the month of free food for me. Not only do I have a free breakfast coming up on Friday, but I have a retirement party today, a Christmas party on Friday evening, AND so many gift baskets/packages have arrived from alumni that I have been given quite a bit of cheese (including brie) to take home, as well as pudding mixes and concentrated water-enhancers (from a company that produces them). I haven't bought groceries since before Thanksgiving. But I will this weekend.

This weekend will be busy with decorating, grocery shopping, gift wrapping and laundry. I'm not able to get anything done at night, especially now that the snow and cold has moved in. It makes me more tired than ever. And then being cold at home just drives me to bed earlier. I'm sick of winter already -- and it's just started!

    bummer that your home is so cold. do you not have your own heat source in the condo? i hope you find a solution fast!

    I have radiators which connect to a central boiler. No control over the heat level at all. Till now it hasn't been a problem!

    I put a comment on the discussion board today. Next step will be calling the President of the housing association.

    I'd measure the temperature in your unit and if its low enough, definitely frame it as a plumbing issue.

    I also wonder if it is a maintenance problem. However, my suggestion is to get a little ceramic space heater (or whatever kind) or borrow one and use it just where you are so you aren't suffering--just a stop gap measure till the heat is fixed. Good luck!

    It must be awful trying to get washed up in such temps.
