Re: OT: to my friends

Subject: Re: [CHAT] OT: to my friends

I was talking about real hypothermia dear, like when I got stranded
in<br>the mountains. Not in the office. And I'd love 77, that would be a
heat<br>wave in this meat locker....<br><br><br>---------- Original

my office is not going to get hypothermia<br>>because I lowered the temp
in her office from 78 to 77. And even those<br>>of us who lower our
temps at home at night (mine is 61 night 67 day - up<br>>to 70 if I do
feel cold) to perhaps 60 are not going to get hypothermia<br>>from it.
Yes, you get sleepy with hypothermia, but I can't imagine<br>>getting
sleepy DURING THE WORKDAY because you're
chilly.<br>><br>><br>>Conversely, at night WHEN I WANT TO SLEEP, I'm
more comfortable in a<br>>cool environment. If I get too warm it will
wake me up. So, now that it<br>>is dark outside in the morning so the
natural brightening of the room<br>>doesn't wake me up, the steady
warming of the room does as the the<br>>programmed thermostat brings it
up to 67 degrees.<br>><br>><br>>It's not my intention to argue. How
abbout a poll?<br>>During the workday, do you get sleepy if you are too
warm or too cold?<br>><br>>Kitty<br>>> Me too Melody. As I recall
getting sleepy is one of the first stages of<br>>> hypothermia. Got
stranded in the mountains in PA (college days) in the<br>>> snow and did
everything I could to stay awake. Knew if I succumbed to<br>>> sleep,
I'd be a goner.<br>>> <br>>> <br>>> ---------- Original Message
