Oh to think of snow..... puts a big smile on! Maybe HGTV will see that we need a tidbit about the 2016 Smart Home.
There are some tricks to learn for sure. When a house does not have A/C then ceiling fans are a must. Grab some ice and put it in front of a room fan since that will act like A/C. The best and easiest is to have at least a 2 story house. Open some windows at night to let the cool temps in and then close the house up tight when the sun comes up to keep the cool temps in. Sounds easy, it is, and the downstairs will stay about 20 degrees cooler than the outside temps even during the hottest parts of the day. Keep positive and remember that the temp cranks up and then the cooler monsoon weather arrives. Hubby used to enjoy running the mountain trails in the Phoenix area during this time of year since he said that once the temps got over 100 and even better if they were over 110 there would be hardly anyone on the trails (he knew how to keep hydrated and other tricks to lower his body temp).
How exciting for you! Maybe....maybe....Good Luck!
Me too. It was fun when HGTV would show the drawing and give out clues. Though the clues were really vague, it was fun trying to guess what the clues meant and where the ambush team was going. Okay, HGTV, watching the drawing or giving us a crumb would be greatly appreciated as you plan and put the ambush into play.
Hey, like that you said Arizona. As you see, I am from there but since I can't chose Arizona in your game I must say somewhere in the east like Eurgenia27 guessed. When one looks at the winners from HGTV sweepstakes, a higher percentage of winners seem to be from the east. Thanks for your game to keep us entertained during the waiting.
forgot to mention that there are some super sleuths out there that visit this site often for news. They are checking if someone has found a tidbit of news. They will keep on top of it and will let all of us know when something pops up. They usually find a crumb somewhere before HGTV even gives this site an update. Maybe HGTV will surprise us first with something the way they used to. Here is a good luck to you and to all!
hopin' to hear something soon too.
Thanks for these fun spots to visit. Maybe Tiffany will be the HGTV rep who surprises this years winner. Maybe she will need some lower heels in case she gets another moving hug from the winner like she did in one of the ambushes (DC Coop had past surprise sites and don't remember if it was the 2015 or 2014 woman winner who was a small lady but Tiffany went down from the moving hug). Good Luck!
Oh my goodness, a machine that does all that the FoldiMate does. What an addition to any home. From past HGTV blog sites mentioning that the site is monitored, someone has surely made a notation about possibly adding this to an upcoming home and yahoo! Good luck! Today may be the day that the winner is chosen. We are getting closer and closer to knowing about that lucky person.
