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.

I set mine for 60-62ish in the winter. I haven't even had my gas turned on by the utility yet, though I've been considering it as the thermostat's been hitting 62 with the temps outside in the low 40s at night.

I actually set my thermostat to about 64 in the winter...  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
