A Lucky Thermostat

Posted by theresa | Mar 20, 2008

I'm not always the brightest bulb in the box, but I eventually catch on. For almost 2 weeks now Hayley and Ellen have been complaining that they were cold in their basement bedrooms. First I chalked it up to being sick -- they did suffer from chills. Then I decided we had all gotten used to warmer outdoor temperatures and sunny days warm up our upstairs to 70 degrees even in the winter. So comparatively the basement just felt cooler. The basement thermostat always read 68 degrees, so it was obviously just our perception.

Then it hit me yesterday. Lucky's box and requisite heat lamp sat directly under the thermostat! Of course it was toasty in that spot. But the rest of the basement was cold! So I moved Lucky's box to the other side of the room and wouldn't cha know it -- the basement feels pleasant again.
