Chilly indoor conditions

It’s been very cold in my apartment over the past couple days. My feet get so cold (even right next to the heating duct) that I’m wearing my shoes in the house.

It’s a puzzlement why things would be so cold. All right, it’s currently 8 degrees outside right now and I’ve got the thermostat at 56 degrees. I’d turn it up, but I feel so bad for my landlords (who are elderly). I get such a deal in rent, I want to help out in some other ways and that includes not turning the thermostat too high.

Anyway, during the winter, I like to leave my bottles of soda on the floor by the door. It’s cool enough to keep the drink chilled but not frozen like when I leave it in my fridge.
