February Mini-Challenge: Home Heating – How Low Can You Go

The sustainability group met this morning. 17 people attended, a number of them for the first time. Because February is often one of the coldest month’s of the year here in Minnesota, we decided to see what we could do about the home heating bill. That’s going to be a challenge for us. We already have a set-back thermostat and it seems to me we set it WAY back… but we’re up for a challenge. Let’s see how low we can go and not upset our tenant.

NEXT SUSTAINABILITY MEETING: March 5, 10:30 to noon, Peace Coffee on 34th and Minnehaha.

About thinkofitasanadventure

We are a 50-something couple living in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis. We attended a sustainability conference at our local high school in November 2010, with keynote speaker Richard Heinberg from the Post Carbon Institute. What we heard shocked us deeply. We finally understood the need to transition away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible. We immediately began to change the way we live. We joined together with other folks in our neighborhood to learn more, to do more and to have fun doing it! We're part of Transition Longfellow. We're choosing to change now and to "think of it as an adventure." If you are on this journey too, we'd love to hear from you.
