Have you turned on the heat?

A "cold front" came through last night. It is 73 in my house (the a/c is off). I'm cold - I like it to be about 77. Ugh!! I don't want to turn my heat in yet - I hate the smell (that first time it's turned on) and ugh the bill - hate that more

Have you had to turn on the heat? How cold is it outside?

Wow that is 2 degrees cooler than we usually keep it with the air on...:)  it has been getting cold out and the house will be about 63 in the mornings when we get up.  We have space heaters at the moment.  We haven't turned on the main heater yet.  Won't do that until we have too.  So for now dd has a space heater in her room and we have one in ours.  The rest of the house has to suffer! ;)

Absolutely!  It was 40 this morning!  The heat is set to 72 during the day and goes a bit down during the night. We have a propane fireplace and my husband continues to tell me to turn it on whenever I'm cold and to turn up the heat if I want.  Lots of days I turn it up to 75, and then turn it back own....mornings are just so chilly.

No. Here in Los Angeles, we had just gotten over a heat spell with temps in the upper 90's and humidity 60 percent and over. I had to wash my dreadlocs twice a day from the sweat. Today it was in the 70's and it was beautiful! Finally fall weather (for now, next week it may be in the 90's again).
