My wife and I drove North to visit my parents. We had not visited in quite some time, and my parents were happily surprised to see us both. My wife and I were surprised by the cold weather, and we both shivered in the arctic temperatures. Since my parents didn’t know we were going to visit, they didn’t have the spare bedroom ready. The spare bedroom is located in the basement. The only source of heat, is a small electric heater. The electric heater works really well, but it takes a long time to heat the whole bedroom space. My wife and I took our things downstairs, and the temperature was very cold. We could see our breath in the frosty air. My wife turned on the electric heater, and set the thermostat for 74 degrees. We went upstairs to have some coffee and pastries with Mom and Dad. They were still very surprised to see us, and they had tons of questions. We talked for several hours, before my parents were tired. They decided to go to bed, and my wife and I went downstairs. It was very warm in the bedroom, and the electric heater was still running. My wife and I adjusted the thermostat, because 74° was too warm. We turned down the electric heater to a more reasonable temperature, and laid down with a single blanket on the bed. In the morning, my wife and I woke up well rested. We decided to go for a nice walk in the morning air, while we considered our options for the day.
