Not at all impossible, Manon. I've been there. Three day power outage in the middle of winter. I could see my breath. The fridge, normally keeping cold in, kept the cold out during that time. I had to put stuff in my fridge to keep it from freezing.
...Your house needs heaters to keep it warm? Wow, I can't imagine the bill. Where do you live? Antartica?! Because my house can run without the heaters and it's at normal temperature, I'm pretty sure all other houses run like that, too.
I live in New England, and even with the space heaters on some parts of my house get to 40 Fahrenheit or below in the winter unless we have the central heat on. We *can* go without the heat (and do sometimes to save money) but it is not even remotely comfortable. I would have to guess that you live in a warmer climate than myself (or the OP).
I'm also from New England. I lived on CAPE COD (which for those of you who dont know, its surrounded by the ocean. In theory would keep the place warmer than most other parts of massachusetts/new england) My bedroom had no heat, and one morning I woke up with a glass of ice next to my bed. I spent the rest of the week downstairs until my mom bought me a space heater. I can't even imagine how cold it must be in other, less coastal and/or further north places. Where I am now though, is having an unusually warm winter, so that's alright.
I live on Cape Cod and it's actually been really nice so far this season. High 40's. Right now it's 16 degrees, though, lol. But it does get pretty frigid, especially with the wind chill, I can't imagine what it's like if it should be /warmer/ here, so I get what you mean, 51. OP: Damn. FYL. :3
