Because of the cold snap in this region and power outages in nearby Texas, northern NM is running low on natural gas. We are being urged to use it sparingly now, and use space heaters and woodstoves instead, and I overheard talk on the city bus that business are closing early to not use up too much heat. I had the heat on last night but it was still a bit hard to sleep because of how cold it was. I don't think my fireplace does a good job of heating the house, but it looks like I'll probably be using it tonight. I will turn the thermostat way down, but I'm afraid the pipes may freeze if I shut it off entirely. No canceled work for me, though. Any tips on handling this situation?
