For as long as I can remember, Sue and I have resisted turning on the furnace in October. And as far as I can remember, we have never made it to the end of the month.
On Thursday, this reminder popped up in my FB timeline from October 26 last year.
You see, we didn't make it — by 5 days.
What about this year? As I write this on Friday evening to post of Saturday morning, the 28th, the furnace remains off.
But will we make it to the bitter end? I don't know.
Here is the 7 day forecast, but only the first 4 days count, and we are already on day 1 of those 4 days. Monday and Tuesday will have highs of less than 10°, and the nights will get down to near freezing.
For the one country in the world that doesn't do metric, here it is in Fahrenheit. (Alright, that's a dig. I mean you could do it, right? If ya wanted to? You just don't wanna, right?)
So, what's the thinking? Will we make our silly goal?
I am not sure why this has become a thing with Sue and me. It's not as though we really care. I mean to say, if we turn the furnace on come Monday, we'll just shrug our shoulders and carry on as always. I guess it's just a game we play. And always lose. So what about this year? Eh?
