Re: Brrr! (aka getting used to living in a house, not an apartment)

This weekend has been the coldest weekend I've witnessed since moving to TX, I almost made DH turn on the heat but decided against it. My daughter thought I was crazy, she says it's warm...until we go outside...then it's cold lol.

lol we technically turned the heat on last night but only at 65* so not really. i think i would melt if the heat was turned up that high. that is what i set the air conditioner on when it 110* outside.

72 is still open windows here too. It was a bit chilling this morning (66 in the house) because it was in the 40s last night & only a high of 52 today but we just warmed up the family room with the (gas) fireplace. Not sure about tonight... might actually have to close our bedroom windows, looks like it's going to get down to 37. During the winter, we heat to about 67-68 during the day, 62ish at night.

We're going down to 41 degrees tonight & we still have the AC on at night plus a box fan & ceiling fan in each bedroom. They will stay on until the snow flies.
ETA it's the AC that'll go off when it snows the fans are year round. We love it cold to sleep.

BRRR! Might want to take a little video of him lighting it if there's a trick to it! I kwym, we left the swamp cooler on vent a couple nights ago and it got down to 62 in the house! We were shocked. LOL

Our heat never gets turned off; we just set it to 67 and it normally kicks on a few times throughout the summer (it was on pretty much ALL summer since our summer was awful and cold/rainy this year).
