Car Seat Heater Beats the Cold
I hate the cold, yet I love winter snow, did I also say I'm not a morning person?
Nothing is worse than getting into a cold car in the morning to drive to work. So how do I survive the Nebraska cold winter mornings. This year I did not have to freeze my fanny off now when driving to work. My very thoughtful husband gave me a heated car seat cushion for my birthday last fall and it is WONDERFUL!
Yes, that needed capitals and bold, and the exclamation mark, because a warm tush is a happy tush.
Yes I'm a winter wuss, but I love the other seasons in Nebraska so I stay. It's the little things in life that are luxuries, like a car seat warmer.
If your car did not come equipped with electric heated seats don't despair. You can get the same warmth and comfort in your automobile for a lot less than paying for a factory installed heated seat.
This heated seat cushion is easily installed in less than five minutes, stretch cords securely fasten under the front seat and around the back. The heat is supplied by plugging in the cord to the cigarette charging plug-in on the dash or console.
My heated seat cushion has a dual control, high and low, and within just a few minutes I feel a radiating warmth on my legs and into my lower back. By the time I'm on the highway (10 minutes) I'm turning the heat to low as I've gotten a little toasty. Halfway through my 35 minute commute the car heater is finally catching up and I'm peeling off my gloves and scarf.
By the time I get to work I'm warm, toasty, and in a good mood. Next year, a remote start.
