Ours came on in the middle of the night earlier this week.  It made me sad.  It means winter really is coming.

I live in a no snow zone, I rarely use heat. If needed, I turn on the gas fireplace for an hour to take a chill off.

It is supposed to be 55 here by morning; I am so ready for some cooler weather I don't want the heat to come on; would rather just put on another blanket.

Here in South Texas its starting to slowly cool down---- mornings are in the upper 50's....and the afternoons in the upper 80's so it wont be until December before there will be a blue norther freezing temperatures at night and we consider turning on a heater....

I'm putting it off as long as possible, but I'm cold natured so not sure how much longer I can hold off.  I've been sitting around the house with long sleeves and a light jacket on during the day.  Highs are getting up into the high 70's but that doesn't translate to how warm it gets in the house.

We have had so many days in September of 100+ degrees, that any break is welcome. 


Tonight the low will be  61 degrees and the cool air feels like heaven.
