A little too chilled out?

Today on Giving Tuesday, LAist needs your support.
Today, your donation to LAist will be matched dollar for dollar. Your tax-deductible that gift powers our reporters and keeps us independent will be felt twice as strong today, so don't delay!

Walking to the car after dinner was cold. The kind of cold that settles into the tips of your ears, that makes you plunge your hands in your pockets, that makes you wear socks. And so many of our adobe abodes are underinsulated that getting inside can be, we know, not much warmer than hanging out in the driveway. So we've done a little research. If you've got time to spare on Sunday, Target has knocked 30% off all space heaters — and humidifiers, because it's a dry cold. If you don't mind dropping a little more money, Home Depot has new gas stoves that look like woodburning stoves but aren't all sooty. Or maybe it's time to get fancy and outfit your home with a gorgeous new fireplace and mantel. We'll bring the marshmallows!
