This winter is killing me

It’s a balmy 8 degrees in my zip code, according to, and I’m just not having it. Neither are our puny oil-filled heaters, which valiantly tried to maintain the temperature in here after we cranked up the real heat (just the third time since New Year’s Eve), but are failing hour by hour. Well, the temp in the apartment dropped 3 degrees in the past 3 hours, so I’m guessing we’ll have to turn on the heat again in another hour or two so we don’t freeze to death in our sleep (kidding, kidding).

Meanwhile, I see the one CD I have in Citibank is maturing next week. I hope I don’t single-handedly crumble the institution by withdrawing it and putting it in another bank with a better rate… 1.24% on a CD is ridiculous, even by today’s standards, when I can get 3% or a bit better elsewhere.
