68 degrees are you fucking kidding me, Rachel? highest your heat should ever be on in a ski town is maybe 60-62... Otherwise, talk about a waste. My roomie came back up from a monthlong stint in Sacramento last week. He immediately turned the heat up to 75. I had to unhook the thing after I started sweating balls off in my own home. I don't care if there is snow on the ground here, that's just stupid lol.
Regardless, homes in LA are built just like homes in Northern California - which see temps down into the 20's every single year. We've survived like that for I don't know? forever!... and 'surviving' a night where you can see your breath for the first time in a blue moon is a little different than the hundreds of thousands of homeless in Detroit or Cleveland. It's just like when San Fransico folks freak out about temperatures in the 90's for a few days every august because they don't have air conditioning... walk 2 miles down to the 60 degree ocean and jump in to cool off.. You'll fucking live.
Many of my fellow Californians need to grow a pair, put on a sweater, or set some shit on fire in a steel trash can like they do in all the apocalyptic movies. Lol.
Have a nice day, Bluename.
