pipe drapes keep the me warm in zero degree weather

Now, I’m not one to to wait around for government help if I can avoid
it. So, like I often do, when hearing about things like this, I think

to myself, how would I survive such a situation? No heat.

Drapery PanelsI
think if I was utilizing this strategy, I would insure that kitchen was
holding as much of the warmth in as possible. Carpets and rugs on the
floor. Drapery Panels
quilts over windows and doors. Even the walls (if there are walls
without cabinets on them) can be insulated with rugs or drapes.

I’m reminded of a Japanese table, the kotatsu, that has blankets pipe drape over it and a small heating element in the middle. The Japanese of course use low-to-the-ground pipe drapetables,
and cushions to sit on, but it could easily be adapted to the American
preference of high chairs. If electricity is out, the older versions of
this concept used a low small charcoal brazier under the table.

Things would have to be truly desperate before I’d have an open fire
in my house. It’s far more likely to burn the house down than provide
consistent heat. I wouldn’t need to break the window if I did things
with a bit of planning, and my rental property could remain largely
undamaged.
