It was so cold, the hair froze off my toes.

It’s autumn in Illinois! The trees are changing colors, the deer are getting restless, and the corn is in harvest. This means one thing……..when you drive a country road to work, it can be comparable to road construction in Chicago. Stop and go traffic, YOU CAN NOT PASS A COMBINE! And instead of pot holes we have road kill.
Then there is the fact it is getting it is getting colder! No, not quite cold enough to turn the furnace on, but cold enough to shock your body when your bare feet hit that cold tile floor in the kitchen as you tiptoe to the coffee machine. As you stand there waiting for your coffee, you wonder if your feet are frozen to the floor like that kids tongue when he tried to lick a steel flag pole in that Christmas movie.

Luckily, TPI Corporation makes the TSH20J Fan Forced Kick space Heater.

Polar Vortex

TPITPIE00032_1_PE_001

It sounds like a heavy metal band from Canada, “Hey we’re going to see Polar Vortex tonight, wear your spandex AAAA!”
Well in reality, a polar vortex is a large pocket of extremely cold air situated over the polar region that can occasionally break away and venture south into Canada and the United States. What we end up with, is really cold temps followed by a lot of snow, and then more cold air and even more snow. It‘s a viscous cycle that starts in November and seems to never end.
It never fails, there is always something breaking down that I have to work on in my garage. Last year, my fingers actually froze to the handle on my snow blower while I was working on it.
Not this year, I am buying the TPI HF686TC Unit Heater, also known as:
“THE BULLDOG”

No more freezing hands or icicles hanging out of my nose!
