I bought one of those oscillating fans with a heat setting. This may have been a mistake: I'm not sure how I can ever be expected to get up from this chair ever again.

The good news: if the weather's as bad as expected, I have permission to work from home tomorrow.

The not so good: I'm not sure that will be nearly long enough.

Wait, do you--do you mean, like, a space heater, or is this some new wizardry of which I have not yet heard?

Basically, this. Not exactly my model, but close. It has a fan and a heating unit, so you can use it like a desktop fan or you can have it blow toasty-warm air at you. Space heaters, I think of as being larger, more powerful, and more prone to fire hazards; this turns off if it tips over, and the case doesn't seem to get warm. (Still I unplug it when I'm not home.)

The important part: my room was chilly, noticeably colder than the rest of the flat. Now I have this heat-generating cube I can situate on the arm of my chair, and just bask in the happy-toasty feeling, and it's glorious.

I hope you're home, safe and warm! It's snowing hard here, and is incredibly windy.

I'm glad you have one of those. My daughter has to have one in her room... it just gets too chilly in there otherwise.

Fan with heat sounds absolutely perfect to me! Enjoy the heat and I hope you don't end up having to trudge through massive snow and cold temps.

Weather extremes - we had near record temperatures in Sydney yesterday - it was about 107 F on my back verandah yesterday - in the shade. I was giving thanks that we had bought a house with two air conditioners. Hope your weather improves soon.
