it’s cold. well, let me rephrase. it’s cold for santa barbara. i love the fact that i can see my breath in the morning and the evening. but what i really like is the fact that my loving wife loves the electric blanket. i have never had one growing up or even as i was older. but to climb in to a warm bed. it’s heavenly. we do shut it off though, so don’t think we are wasting electricity. come on. we do what we can.
