@narfcake I’m on well water so when my well tank is warm, everything is warm. I’m wondering if when I’m switched to city water later this year, how much cooler the water will be since it won’t be running through a hot tank.
Nothing worse than getting out of a hot shower into a hot bathroom and trying to keep drying yourself off for seemingly hours just so you can have even the slightest dry moment but the sweat keeps coming and finally you realize that “dry” is something that you are just going to have to dream about for another day.
@sicc574 - What usually works for me is a hot shower, then turn it down to lukewarm and stand in it for five or six minutes, then finish with cold water. That leaves me sweating less and perks me up for the drive home, but doesn’t make it hard to get to sleep when I get there.
@aetris I believe elsewhere you mentioned that no one has asked what you do for a living. So now I’m curious. And I obviously assume you’re talking about Limerick so 8 miles covers a pretty large perimeter. As far south as Phoenixville, west to Douglasville, north to Boyertown, and east to Collegeville.
??? I never mentioned that no one has asked what I do for a living. In fact I’m pretty sure that I’ve said things like “I’ll be crawling around under a raised floor”.
BUT - on a SOMEwhat unrelated topic - my primary care doctor is a member of Tower Health Group and keeps trying to send me to Phoenixville… Which I think you might know something about - my inclination is Paoli - do you have a professional opinion? Feel free to Whisper if that would be more appropriate.
@aetris You did mention it, I’ll have to find it. I have a personal grudge against Paoli and Main Line Health in general. They both have their pros and cons but I wouldn’t turn away from Phoenixville. I still have plenty of friends there and honestly, I’d go back there if there was an opportunity.
cold, and often the cold isn’t cold enough. i actually take cool showers year round because hot water irritates my skin & it’s not good for my hair either. but in the dead of winter they’re a bit warmer than they are in the summer of course. (we have separate knobs and in the summer i don’t even turn the hot water on.)
often my cold showers are foiled by a bizarre water/plumbing issue where the pressure drops and all that remains is water hot enough to literally burn your skin. so you just stand there sweating and huddled in the corner for several minutes until the cold kicks back in.
I have a weird heat sensitivity and thought my lukewarm showers were hot. But after getting married, I learned that my subjective ‘hot’ showers are barely lukewarm. At first I thought he had superpower-like heat tolerance, but it turns out to be my oddity of sensitivity to heat. If I crank the shower to normal people’s ‘hot’ it literally burns my skin. Anyone else have this problem?
