It would be a lot easier if we could just invent a huge heating pad to wrap around our houses. Hey Elon Musk, this is your challenge. We could call it Musk Wrap, go Musk my house!

Ladies and gentle-dudes, the air is changing, the snow is starting to stick to the ground and my heating pad is plugged in every night because my toesies are freezing.

On a positive note, I haven't seen any browntail moths for weeks. So that's good.

I also found tips on Gas South, that you can do each day to keep your home cozy without breaking the bank!

Below are my top ten picks on how to heat your home properly this season!
