I live in the middle of Wyoming and it has been getting pretty cold =
here. It has been anywhere from -10 to 10 in the morning this past week. =
I roast in my unheated garage with my heat gun and dog bowl! I have =
found it harder to roast in these temperature- it is just taking too =
long. I have been trying to figure out a solution - I told my husband =
that we needed to get a heater for the garage! So this past weekend I =
remembered that I had an electric hot plate so I thought I would put =
that under my dog bowl. All is well - and then everything shuts off. =
Darn - blew a circuit! So we spend an hour trying to find the GFI reset =
switch in the garage. Finally found it and lo and behold - everything =
works again. So I find a long extension cord and plug the hot plate in =
to another section in the garage and get started again. Worked =
beautifully!! Thought I would pass that along to any other people that =
roast in colder climates!

It's cold here too in Central Alberta. I think one advantage of the 
bread machine is that the housing has a lot of insulation. Once you get 
heat into the bread pan, the insulated housing holds it in pretty well.
I have done a fair amount of roasting at -20C/-4F with no problem.
The electric hot plate sounds like a great idea for the dog bowl crowd!!
