Yeah I really closed it. Normally I don't close the window until it actually starts snowing, but tonight there is a super cold breeze blowing and my room was like an ice box. I don't mind being cold in bed as it helps me sleep, but outside of bed I hate it. I also have 2 blankets on my bed so I bundle up under those and sleep tight. When do you close your windows?

I don't mind a chill, because I can put on a sweater. I just love the fresh air.

We only have French doors in the bedroom so I keep those closed unless it's stinking hot.

I usually only close them when it starts snowing, but it's been in the 30's here as of late.

I do try to keep the windows open if I am at home and the weather permits it. I like airing out the house whenever possible. But right now it's super windy . . . coldness and dust flying around everywhere . . . it's nighttime now so we're keeping them shut!

I don't blame you for shutting them. I tend to close them half way during storms so it doesn't rain inside the house.

Only at night. We don't have winter here so I usually leave them open most of the time.

Why do you close them at night? Intruders?

The windows stay closed most of the time since I do not need to catch a cold from the bad weather outside.

@LisaSteinmetz That is true because having a cold is not fun.

I usually shut my heat vents when it kicks in and open them when the window is closed.

My bathroom window is open most of the time, unless it's freezing. If I want some fresh air in the house I open other windows as and when. I love my fresh air.

Sounds cold. It was very cold here last night. 58F. I had to put the heating on - first time this winter as it was 68F inside the house. Which is not actually cold but I wanted the house to be toasty at 5am today.

I closed it today when I woke up. The chill was too bad for me. But my bedroom is open. I can't imagine how low the temp would be for me to get under the blanket.it's truly something I can't do. You see that bedding there. I sleep on top of it with a cover. I have no idea when last I pulled it to get under it.

I love that bedroom of yours! It's beautiful. I don't mind being chilly when in bed, because I can cover up. Plus I sleep better if I'm a bit chilly. I get tired when I'm cold so it works out for me.

Where I lived in Minneapolis it was so warm inside my apartment in winter that I had to open the window. Here in Jerusalem I close everything because it is both cold inside and outside here and have to have some kind of heating system to keep us warm.
