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 :smile: 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?

Never! Living in Miami it's way too hot to ever turn on the heater. Even when it's "cold," there's never really a need to turn on the heater. I wish it got colder down here.

I live in San Diego and have had the heat on (off and on) since October. Its on right now. Although sometimes I will turn it off but I like my house to be about 75 inside. We'll probably turn it off spring time but with the ocean breeze it gets cold inside. And I don't like to wear sweaters in the house. I'd rather have the heat on and I'd rather be warm than cold. But its sunny and warmish outside today.

Here in Colorado we've had an extremely mild winter. It's 72 today. So far I've only had the heat on at night when it cools off. It looks like we might get snow on wed.

We're already turning on the heat at night here in SF. The nights have been pretty cold. That, coupled with useless drafty single-pane windows makes the heat a necessity!
