I don't bake bread much anymore, but when I did, my winter kitchen temps were pretty low for proofing. I just saw this and thought it was interesting.

I try to stay away from it too, and I think Laurel is also concerned about that. But I just forwarded your info to a friend who is on a bread-baking binge right now because her house is too chilly for her dough to rise in the winter!
