Item one: Nova Scotia in January is freakishly cold.
Item two: This causes water to condense on the inside of windows.
Item three: In 150-year-old buildings where the walls are foot-thick stone, radiators make the room too *hot*.
Item four: When the radiator is not turned on, and it is cold outside, this allows for the condensed water on the glass to turn into ice...
...and thereby, my window is frozen shut.
This is new.
