The only thing I can remember from Noisebridge History was using that
clear plastic window winterizing stuff that we used on the skylights.
I do not remember if that was still there the last time I was in the
space but we should put that back and also perhaps on the normal
windows.  Winterizing and perhaps putting some heaters might help, it
might even be better if we were to get some solar heating/energy going
to power some sort of heater.  Heaters use a lot of power but

might be interesting to put in our windows.
