Grateful for a Warm Seat

I’m sure there are a million other titles I could’ve used for today’s topic, but I restrained myself a little.

We had our first freeze of the season. Actually, we had two mornings in the freezing temperatures. (The horror! Seriously, I’m done with winter and it’s not even officially winter yet.)

OK, not really toast, because that would imply warmth. The plants are definitely dead.

The important thing here is being toasty, not toast. What better way to be toasty in a car on a freezing morning?

Seat warmers!

They are affectionately called “The Butt Warmers” at my house.

I never thought I’d care about having them. Now, I don’t think I’d want to have a car without them.

It’s so amazing how technology can spoil us.

(And then the science fiction freak in me says, “And then there was SkyNet…” and hopes for someone to say to her, “Come with me if you want to live.”) πŸ˜€

Do you have a frivolous technology love that you can’t live without?

  1. well, I’m not sure about the “frivolous” part here. I mean, I love my little Prius, but on really cold mornings, if I’m driving my mom somewhere, I’m ALWAYS pleased to drive her Honda CRV, the one with the seat warmers. And, when she bought the car, one summer, I too couldn’t imagine their value.

    Fun post. Thanks

      Thanks, Janet. πŸ™‚ It’s funny how we can discount something until we use it. My kids would love it if cars had seat warmers in the back seat.

  2. Our just-a-year-old-now Hyundai came with butt warmers. Let me say, I do not consider them frivolous tech in anyway. They are essential to my winter well-being. Sometimes in the winter, I just want to sit on the drive in my little engine that could and push that butt warmer button. A s’more would go good with that, too. πŸ˜€

      I think that frivolous is not the best word for car seat warmers now. :-)They are a luxurious feature that I’ll be loving even more when we finally get winter here in Texas. My next car must have them.

  3. When I saw your title, my thoughts went to a more…er, personal seat. LOL That first, really cold morning, boy is that a wake up call! I have loved the seat warmers in my sister’s vehicle, though, when I visited in winter. I’m a wuss anymore.

      Oh, so funny! LOL. I think if I lived somewhere that had a real winter, tgen I would want that other kind of seat warmer, too.

      What a great idea! I like that better than just plain ol’ socks. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I’m in the bad books Big time today.. Boy couldn’t go to work on time because I left the lights on in the car last night and the battery’s flatter than a pancake. Someone had to come and pick him up because we couldn’t find any jump leads. I *really* miss the rechargeable self-jumper kit we had when we travelled the coast of Oz in a van that went flatter more often than we argued about directions (alternator issues, had we but known). It had a twinkly LCD light and you could plug it into the cigarette thingy to charge it. AMAZING TECHNOLOGY!!!!

      Oh, OUCH! That’s no fun, Sara!

      It sounds like a perfect Christmas gift for someone!
