Re: uh oh


Chuckle.
Speaking of temps, I finally turned the heat on. Since gas is supposed to be less expensive this season, I'm rethinking my last year's stance of keeping the house at 59 degrees.

I've been losing weight this year and am not sure I could handle it that low anymore. When I was younger at a normal weight my blood pressure was always around 90/60. When I had it checked a few years ago at my high weight it was 135/90 or thereabouts. This past week I went to the dentist (who adds something new to the checkup everytime I go) the hygenist said they now take BP. I was 88/58. I'm thinking that the higher BP (and the extra padding) was keeping me warm.

Ceres, I know your weight is fine; you're just probably used to those low household temps after years of it. But I'm thinking I might go with 62 or 63 this winter.

Yeah... I wouldn't either.

Big difference in our zones Bonnie. Freezing temps are one thing but we usually get a few stretches of a few days each of minus 20 in our winters. A year or 2 ago we actually had a stretch of minus 20 fro 3 weeks. Plumbago is not going to survive here.

Plumbago survives here in the ground with numerous frosts and freezing
temperatures.  I don't know how it would do if we had a serious
winter...one with freezing temperatures of several days to weeks.

Are you keeping track of these temp dip vis-a-vis species? Could be
valuable observations. Especially re plumbago, either blue or white,
and fountain grass, either purple or white.
