My goal each year is to avoid turning the furnace on until October 1st. I don’t know why I came up with this goal, probably because it’s a nice easy date to remember and it usually is within a couple of weeks of the weather turning to require the heat to be turned on in the house.
As you can see, from the title of this post, we made it!
I’m pretty sure in most years past I haven’t made it, and there were a couple of days in the past two weeks that brought us close, but we stuck it out.
It will, however, not go too much further. The temps are going to the low 40’s and even to the 30’s, so victory will be short lived. Still, it’s pretty cool, I’d say.
