Justified & Ancient

Not meaning to take the thread off-topic when it just got back on track, but...I remember ice on the windows when I was a kid.
And that was on the inside.
The house I grew up in (in the U.S.) had coal for heat until the 1970s. Just two radiators on the main floor with a vent over one of them to let the heat upstairs. Ice on the windows was common.
We switched to oil and baseboard heating just as coal was making a weird (but temporary) renaissance as a fuel of choice.
Would that be British Dennis (holy terror) or American Dennis (loveable troublemaker)?My house has 'character'. Unfortunately, the character it has is Dennis the Menace, but you can't have everything.
