Oh boy, here we go

Tonight I turned on my baseboard heaters for the first time. These things scare the shit out of me. They can cause fires pretty easily if flammable material gets close. Mya Pussy loves dragging my clothes across my pad so winter always causes me more grey hair and sleep deprivation. Here are some tips for baseboard heater safety:

􏰀Check baseboard heaters often and remove objects that have fallen on top or near the heater.
􏰀Keep all furniture a safe distance from your heaters. Never block the flow of heat.
􏰀Never permit electrical cords to drape across heaters.
􏰀Always hire an experienced electrician to do any necessary repair work on your baseboard
heaters.

Man, I am crazy, wish me luck this winter.
