Do you bring out the fuzzy hats, and fingerless gloves--ideal for typing and worn by one TreeHugger staffer--and woolly sweaters? Do you invest in cashmere and faux fur? Prove it! We want to see photos of the unique ways you keep the thermostat and the electric bill down--even if it is 100% wind powered energy--in the winter months, for our next readers' slideshow. Click through for details:Upload Photos: The Technical Stuff: Please send only jpeg files. Photographs should be no larger than 550 pixels wide, 72 dpi (that's sized for the web), and 200 KB or smaller. (Want to know more about sizing photos for the Web?
