I think it'* like 10*F tonight with windchill.. but it'* 52*F in my room. My windows would probably protect my room better open, then they do closed right now. I know, I know, Straitor, I need to get the plastic .

I really love my drilled 180 T-stat. It'* great. But when I drive 3 miles to my friends house after letting the car sit for 5 minutes, and the engine is barely at 160 degrees, it stays quite cold in the car.
