Out of the Blue

Well, the cold war between MrsBlue and myself came to a rapid conclusion this year. We have an annual standoff over who will be first to turn on the heat when autumn comes. The stakes were a bit higher this year than usual, since we got our gas meter fixed recently, and are apparently still within the period where they are monitoring our gas usage to correct our back billing. Bill adjustments and bragging rights be damned, once the thermostat showed 63 degrees, I caved and fired up the furnace. I may have lost the war, but I won the battle, or something like that, as at least I'm not freezing.

How old is your home?

Very... about 80 years. And we do have old windows.

We also have an especially cool house, so we don't need AC except in my attic office all summer. The trade off is it is also especially cool in the winter.
