The perils of a south-facing house
Today is sunny but cold day in Seattle. A storm passed through over the weekend and swept away all of the pollution. The sky is a gorgeous shade of blue. I love this type of weather except for one thing: my house faces south. Right now the sun is streaming in through the front windows and the cats have staked out the best spots to sun themselves. It's almost seventy in the living room and the furnace hasn't kicked on in over an hour. But, while the thermostat is enjoying the solar powered splendor at the front of the house, the bathroom has cooled down to about fifty degrees and is still dropping. My butt thought it had escaped such conditions when we left Alaska.
