I know what you mean! We have been in the lower 30's today, and 20's at night. My heat pump runs continuously, I am afraid it will conk out from being over worked. I am in the bottom unit of my building and think I am heating everyone else above me! I almost went out and bought a kerosene heater today. I used to have one when I lived in a drafty apt, but gave it away when I moved here. This building is not insulated properly for extended cold snaps like this.
I did pick up some long handles today, and am wearing them. They sure don't make them like they used to, they are way thin. Along with sweats! It looks colder in Alabama than SC though.
