It is a good day to rejoice in the three things that make a winter day livable in Minnesota
1. an electric mattress pad . . . nothing is more cozy when it's cold outside and you just can't seem to warm up, like a warm bed.
2. electric floor heat . . . stepping onto a warm floor when you come in from the cold with just your socks on is another cozy feeling.
3. an electric heater that circulates the antifreeze in the radiator of your car, when it is colder than 10 above F . . . especially when it is -35 F. It is called a block heater, and yes you do plug it into a receptacle.
