I was driving the kids to school this morning and enjoying the sun...it really made me feel so luck to be in sunny CA. For all it's faults, we really do have lovely weather here. It is 10:00 AM and it is in the mid 60's. It is suppose to be mid to high 60's all week and next week. Look's like we will make until until least December 1 until we need to turn on the heat this year. That's always our goal, some years we can do it some years not...but keeping my fingers crossed, looks like a mild winter Usually by mid february it is warm enough to shut off. When do you have to turn the heater? When can you finally say good bye to cold weather and turn it off?
