I am not sure how it is for all of you, but out here in the east we have oil to heat our house. As you can imagine oil is not at a low price right now. Now let's combine this with the fact that Ryan grew up in a house where you wear your coat indoors. What do you get, not the warmest house you may come across. My poor parents we had to make some adjustments when they visited. Anyway to the picture. My kids always love to sit by the heater when the fan is on. The other day they actually decided to have a slumber party in front of the fan. Needless to say you may not want to visit the Pedersons in the winter.
