    I remember it snowing on Halloween when I was a kid back in Connecticut...I tell my kids out here it used to snow from Halloween to Easter and they always look appalled. I like that out here, we "go to the snow" (aka going skiing, going to the Tahoe area) instead of the snow coming to us!

    Ours is set to turn on at 65 degrees inside. I don't like it too cold, and we have lots of little animals that don't like it too cold either.
    It's been unseasonably warm here lately, temperatures in the 80s during the day as recently as this week...Then I woke up this morning and it was 40 degrees outside, and they're calling for flurries tonight.

    OK, it's Nov. 3rd & finally getting to the time to start turning on the heat & probably the electric blanket after a while.

    No heat on here, yet. It's only 3C here today (I think that's about 37F?), but it's still warm enough inside to get by with slippers and a sweater.

    We did have a fire going yesterday, though. We bought a house last winter that has a woodstove, so we've been pretty pumped about using it. We had the stovepipe replaced this summer and they recommended burning before our baby comes (two weeks!) to get the chemically, new pipe smell out of the house. Last year, we spent over $600 a month on electric heat, so we're hoping the woodstove cuts down that cost by a lot.

    I broke down this morning and turned the heat up to 62 degrees...It was just too hard to get dressed in a 60-degree house!

    It's looking like it could snow at any time here...we had the fireplace on this weekend. It felt GOOD!
