heheh 65 degrees cold.....

I live in maine....so far this "spring" we have been in the mid 40s and had nothing but rain.

In the winter...with the wind it can get to 65 - 70 below zero easily. Not to mention that a normal amount of snow for us in a season is over 120 inches. Yes folks....10 feet of snow. Mind you it doesnt all stay on the ground. It melts a bit here and there but a normal snowpack is 5-6 feet.

Just pile on the blankets! Even here in Michigan when it's snowing out, we turn off or turn down our heat at night to save $$$ so I usually sleep with 5 or 6 layers of blankets.
In my friends student house they only have one heater and they barely use it, in winter they all went across to a house full of student girls because they managed their finances well and had money saved to use their oil, if they were out they went to the pub/ lib/ club so they could be somewhere warm

adapting my body temperature to cold is the only skill I've got

I'd shut off all rooms but the one you're willing to live in for the duration of the cold snap, then utilize a space heater. Keep your head covered, layer up your clothing with special attention to your torso, and keep those hot liquids going. I'd also read a book that reminds you of warm weather while your all bundled up. Stay warm!

Sounds like you need a pair of flannel pyjamas.

And of course - fluffy slippers.

In the winter I pull fannel sheets on my bed. I also use an oil base heater that warms up a room very quickly. I also wear lots of sweathers.
