Every year I delay using A/C in the warmer months and heat in the colder months. This year hasn't been an exception to that.
Most of last week it ranged from 56 to 58 in my house. A bit on the cool side but nothing really bad. I spent the weekend at my girlfriend's house and when I returned to my house at 5pm on Sunday it was to find the house had cooled further. Down to 51.2 degrees, to be exact.
That was the limit. I don't like it to go under 55 so I turned on the heating system within 5 minutes of getting home. Brrr! Now it's a toasty 62 in here and I'll probably turn it up to 65 tomorrow. It takes a while for the house to warm up so I'm gradually getting it used to the idea, you see.
It was supposed to go below freezing last night but I don't know if it did or not. There was a little ice on Carrie's deck but it didn't feel all that bad outside when we went hiking at 9am. Probably around 45f. But a couple of cold nights really dropped the temp in my house.
Tomorrow morning I have a doctor's appointment. I have a feeling she's going to tell me to lose more weight. Probably around 12-15 pounds. More hiking and less eating, I guess. I'm at 192 now and I should be around 182... or even less. That's not going to make this a fun winter. :-(
