The Heat is On
October 1, 2009 our house was 56 degrees inside and we turned the heat on. In September we talked about the temperature at which we would turn the heat on. I'm pretty sure I said when it was in the 50's that we would. The last couple of days it was tolerable--except the tile floor in the bathroom--brrr. After work we had been wearing winter hats inside to stay warm and we'd open the curtains at lunch time and the house would heat up from 56 to a balmy 57.
There was frost on the ground yesterday when we went to work and we've been parking the car in the garage to avoid scraping frost from the windows.
Two years ago it was September 12!
