Cindy: Let The Thermostat War Begin

On her Facebook wall, Cindy proclaims: "Let the thermostat wars begin. It's pretty hard to type while wearing mittens." Seems Cindy's husband has yet to turn on the heat, prompting her to write: "I'm not sure what his criteria is. Perhaps he thinks the energy I emit while fuming about the chill will keep the house warm enough for awhile about an hour ago." Responded Trish Gannon of the River Journal: "I've had fires goin' for a month. One reason I never want to be married again ... men are warmer."

Question: Who controls the thermostat in your home?
