|Hot tea between classes is my SAVIOR.|
|Kerosene stove in the staff room. You get used to the smell.|
At home, Matt and I use a combination method. The Japanese swear by their kerosene heaters, and while I agree nothing heats the house faster, I don't like the smell. They also say you should open windows to ventilate the fumes, which is very counterproductive. There is also a heating unit on the aircon, which is nice sometimes. I use a electric space heater in the bathroom for when I get out of the shower, and spend most evenings snuggled under the kotatsu. Our bed also has a heated pad for the chilly nights.
We're doing okay so far, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see when the snow gets here!
