i live in an old building in leipzig that hasn't been renovated since before ww2. there are coal burning ovens in two of the 4 rooms... last year i used one, but it takes about 3 hours of burning to notice a temperature improvement (it's not the best oven) and it eats up wood and coal... so this year, i am delaying as long as possible, too.

so far it has been under 10 degrees celsius for about two months. one week was particularly cold, and there was a thin layer of ice in water glasses in the mornings. i wear several sweaters, layered, and when sitting, a sleeping bag and hot-water bottle. and i drink plenty of coffee and tea.
