    Just once last week when it dipped to 32 at night. I keep my bedroom window open at night when it's in the 40's. heh It's been a perfect October.

    ~We went on a mini camping trip and got back today. We left the campground at 35-ish* and pouring rain. We walked into a dark and dreary 57* house. After feeling chilled to the bone already, I just couldn't take it.
    The heater is officially on!~

    Broke down and turned it on yesterday. I usually try to wait until sometime in November.

    Haven't had a lot of choice. It dropped into the 40's a good week ago, and we just got snowed on all night!

    Not yet. It's getting very cold at night, so we are having to close windows, but I just have the kids slip on a sweatshirt. I do need to purchase additional blankets for the house. I will be attempting to not turn on the heat for at least a few more weeks.

    It was 59 inside my house when we woke up this morning...so, I broke down and turned on the heater. It is set at 62. Will hopefully invest in either heating blankets or heated mattress pads soon to turn in down some more.

    Nope, not yet. Have used the oil radiators to take the chill off, it hasn't been above 60' in the house for a week or more. Has dipped pretty low at night. When we do it will be set so as the pipes won't freeze. Other than that we'll use the oil radiators. They don't heat the house, but they sure keep it from freezing in here. If company comes over we'll kick it up so they are not uncomfortable.

    Last Winter I had a tough time ticking that thermostat back to 62' but by the time Winter was a third or so of the way in I could have it well under 60' I draw the line where we can see our our breath in the house. My one GF's husband keeps their heat that low. That's just crazy.

    The only time the heater gets kicked up (other than for company) is if someone is sick.

    *Sigh*..... I just had to turn the heater on today. It was 45 degrees this morning and an expected 29 for a low tonight. I'm not looking forward to high heat bills.....

    Ours is still off. 55.2* inside as I write this...with a quilt over my shoulders. We had 15" of snow on Saturday but we take advantage of sunny days and open the drapes fully so it gets up to 70* in the living area. Close the drapes when the sun goes dawn and it retains the heat.

    We keep the bedroom door closed so with solar heating, an electric blanket and a warm DH, it is warmer.

    Grrr, dh just came home from work and said how cold it is in this house. Really? He turned the heat on and I let it knock off the chill and I turned it way down so it may only kick only a couple times tonight, maybe, since it's suppose to get to freezing tonight. So this is only the second time we've turned it on this year. Not bad, the weather has been nice.

    Trying to cut our gas bill since it went up 20 bucks! And where is the cold cream!! heh
