One small act of miscalculation with a basement office: I did all the work to set it up during 40-50 degree temperatures.
A new wave of chilliness has swept across this area of the country. I noticed that as it fell below 30 outside, my basement fell down from 68 degrees Fahrenheit, where I could easily boost my new basement office space to 70 degrees and be comfortable typing and working, to 63 degrees where I’m just unable to get comfortable. The larger heater I have by the desk gets the temp up to 66.
Upping the humidity a little and making sure I have my shoes on means I’m comfortable, but my fingers just can’t handle anything below 70. They just lock up.
I tried moving the heater around to aim at the keyboard more, but it didn’t work. So I snagged these gloves online:
Just basic fingerless gloves. I got red to make it harder to lose them in the office.
Next winter I’ll get a more powerful heater, but I’m not going to spend a big chunk on a solution there when winter is closer to over than starting and the gloves will do just fine.
