Dan Huwe, Sebeka, Minnesota, stops cold winter drafts from coming under his shed doors with pool noodles. He pushes the noodles down into the space between the door and the shed floor. Huwe says the noodles are tough, can handle getting wet (of course, they are made for floating in the water) and are sturdy insulators against cold air and snow.
