    Question Is your heat off yet?

    Ours is not quite off. Its set so low though that it hasn't come on now for almost a week. I'm hoping the warm weather stays.

    Yours?

    Off here. Woohoo.
    Another cold season over. Phew. I can't believe how high our heating bills were this year.

    It was 26 degrees out this morning so our heater is still kicking on during the night. Our days are starting to get warm now so hopefully the heater will be off soon.

    For the most part, yes. We are cold, but not too cold if we dress properly. I still have the space heater on from time to time in the family room, and the very small space heater on when I take a shower.

    Mine has been off for a while, but I have been cooking more and that heats up the house. I also have been doing wash at strategic times so I can use the dryer to help warm the house.

    I only had to turn it on once during this winter. Heck, my a/c has already been on once!

    We have been mostly using our AC for the last week or so. It is not unusual for us to go from heat to AC in the same day. We probably have a few more weeks to go before we can open up our windows. The pine pollen is so bad you can see it in the air and everywhere else. With the windows open in gets on everything.

    The heat is turned way down at our house, and like Kimberly I'm using the space heater when I get chilly. On those cooler nights, we light a small fire in the woodstove. We are out of seasoned firewood however, so we are trying to cut back on our fires too.

    I'm so glad to not be cold anymore!

    Our heat is off most of the time, except when our friends come by with their baby girl. We'd hate for that beautiful little monkey to get cold!

    Other than that, DH and I have turned it off. It's all warm in here most of the time now anyways.

    We also got our "big" electric bill of the year and we were delighted to find it was about $100 cheaper than it was last year, thanks to our putting plastic over the fronts and backs of the windows!

    Bright Blessings!

    For the most part it is. In the last 2 weeks I've turned it on 3 or 4 mornings (can't have me or the baby getting cold) but just for a few cycles to warm up the living room and the nursery. On the other hand, eventhough we've had some mid 70's to low 80's temps I have yet to turn on the air. Instead we put down the glass on the front door and open the back sliding glass door and let the breeze blow thru. Hopefully the heat won't have to come on in the mornings anymore and I am going to wait as long as possible to turn on the A/C.

    No. We've had rain and some kind of cold fronts, even frost alert. It is cold for this time of year. I hope our garden doesn't die.

    We have quite a bit of heat on. Trying not to especially in day time.
