Bill, this may sound funny to some people who think your measures are a little extreme but I thought your post was really inspiring! A co-worker in CA took similar measures during the 2002 power crises, going around in his house in all of his camping gear and outfitting each bed in the house with a down comforter (and not turning on the heat), though CA winters might be a little milder than AL ones. Following your lead I am going to turn off all of the heat here, sleep in my 0 degree sleeping bag tonight and see how comfortable that is…
And yeah, thermal underwear is the best!!
