Okay, so now it's cold.

If you're a Nutmegger still without power, you're probably wondering how your ancestors survived without central heating. They had some interesting ideas... Those big fireplaces in old homes served a purpose. Our female ancestors could both cook and warm the family home. High-backed chairs kept heat around the person sitting in them and not across the room. And those boxes made of punched tin? They're bed warmers. A warm house sounds really good right now :)
