Dpoll 15: Can you stand the cold?


Dpoll 15: Can you stand the cold?


It is winter and freezing cold.

Hopefully, my water pipes will not get frozen. I need to switch off the power to prevent the water pump for keeping running and get broke (again).
This means I can not use an electric heater in the guestroom to prevent the pipes getting frozen.

My granny lived in an old villa.
It was impossible to heat the whole place so only the living was warm. I hated to go to the bathroom since it was so extremely cold.
Now I have a cold bathroom myself and I put an electric heater to defrost myself.
I can not stand the cold and not only have a cold allergy that causes me rashes and nerve pain but the cold is also infecting my ears and is good for a never-ending cold on the head (headache).

Even if the sun shines inside the temperature will not raise above 6°C.
I am not only wearing a vest and bathrobe or jacket inside over my clothes but a scarf and beanie day and night too.

Partly I am used to the cold.
We all are, although living in a fridge is no fun. If I go to a shop or visit someone where they heat up the place I feel miserable, although it is good to have warm feet once in a while instead of frozen ones.

Which temperature makes you feel most comfortable and... can you stay in a house with a temperature of +/- 6°C _(outside it is not any better)-.
Do you have tips to stay warm? My beanie is for sure not warm and a cold body can not warm-up clothes. Because of allergies, I can not wear wool and synthetic.

I can handle the cold outside. I used to work outside regardless of what the weather is like and I've sort of gotten used to it. I have a pretty modest sized house and a furnace and we keep it relatively warm, but much cooler than a lot of people I know. We keep our house between about 13-16ºC. I just make sure to wear at least a hoodie and some slippers because we have hardwood floors. If I get really cold, I've got a bathrobe I'll wear around the house. If I'm sitting on a chair or a couch, I'll usually have a blanket on.

Thank you for your vote. I think indeed your house is relatively cold. I know a friend had 25°C inside and it makes us feel miserable. A blanket we use too if we sit still.

I love the snow and I can deal with the cold,but what you described are not normal conditions to live...even in prison are better conditions...

Yes, that is what one of the prisoners I wrote with said too. In between the cold one needs to warm up. Thanks for your vote.

Thank you for your vote. I read it also depends on the culture at which temp we feel most comfortable.

I wear warm cloths and take rum during the cold season. It keeps me healthy.

That's awfully cold with you. Maybe there's a pump with heater? Maybe you can ask a professional at a hardware store what you could do. You could sleep at night in a polar sleeping bag with a polar hood and put some extra blankets on it. For the day, you could perhaps tailor another polar sleeping bag into a dress. Maybe you could put up a heater.
I usually have 20°C, at night about 15°C, but then I have 3 blankets. The flat is small, you can heat it quickly. Outside I sometimes have two thick jackets on because I am freezing

@suntree You easily feel cold I understand. Two jackets outside (well I wear the best and a jacket).

In bed is no problem just the head I need to protect. I use two warm water bags to heat up my bed. One underneath my feet and the other one I use to defrost my hands, keep my back warm and at times a shoulder and neck.

Without electricity, we are back into the cold and the house is too old to make all those renovations again (plus no money).

I try to make a fire before the children come home so one room is warm and we sit there. If it's warm enough it can heath up a bigger part of the house. Fact is I do not have money left to buy enough firewood. Perhaps I manage to save some for next year.
Thank you for the tip of the polar sleeping bag.❤️Posted with ![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmbroYujK9LNd2s8zDKPUCADmseyJDuNbhwBPrrF7xM8FL/logo-comment.png)

I once slept in the attic, as visitors were there, then I used a polar sleeping bag. It kept me very warm. I hope you have enough money for it. It's absolutely awful when money is missing, I know how it is. It shouldn't be like that, it's really sad that many things in life are not solved well.

More clothes and a heater if it's -6 degrees otherwise in a 6 degree house I'm content with my pajamas

@legenden the question is the house is cold no heater and how to stay warm. Personally I can not say more clothes really help. As soon as you sit down your body temp will go down too. Might be the body keeps warmer but arms, legs, face, feet, hands, nose..
You have a very thick pyjamas?❤️Posted with ![](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmbroYujK9LNd2s8zDKPUCADmseyJDuNbhwBPrrF7xM8FL/logo-comment.png)
