      Hi Liss:

      When I first read your potato article I saw ak and thought arkansas i thought

      why would cold be a problem in arkansas then i figured out hey ak is alaska. i

      thought maybe you and some other of our northern friends could help me out.

      i live in va in a mobile home that seems to have zero insulatin. i put plastic

      over the windows in winter. but i am still freezing. of course not freezing

      like a ak winter but cold to me.

      how do you folks in ak keep warm without killing your budget. i am thinking

      about using my stimulus to install a woodstove. i can’t afford to have the

      trailer insulated. i am not sure about the whole wood stove thing because i

      have never had one.

      one thing i do is during the day i close off the bedrooms and use an oil filled

      electric radiator in the living room. but boy when dd goes in one of those

      rooms for something. i feel like i am going to freeze to death from the blast

      of cold that comes out. i use an electric blanket on my bed at night. i would

      like to be better prepared for this winter.

      especially since va dominion power has just approached the powers that be about

      a twenty percent rate increase. did i mention this mobile home is all electric.

      tracy

      in va
