It's beginning to get chilly here at night now. Our furnace is on the blink so it's heating blankets and space heaters tonight. What's it like in your neck of the World?

Here in upstate NY during this time our weather is practically un-predictable, today I walked out to the bus and it was 72F this afternoon during lunch it was 45F then on my way home it was 67F. We actually had some Snow a few days ago during the early morning hours.

Sounds like you got hit with the same weather system that blew through here Coles1mom.

I north central Ohio it`s been windows open with some fans blowing on low for a nice spring type breeze. At night there have been a few cases where we have had the heat turned on at about 65F. Forgot a couple nights ago and woke up to 60F inside.

It's 27 here today.

That's 27 degrees Celsius of course, which is around 80 Fahrenheit. :thumbsup:

Woke up this morning to the sound of squawking, looked outside and there was not just one but three flocks flying south each group in it's own formation. Yep, it's time to pull out the sweaters, hiking boots and long johns.

Wow. If they are still heading south after hitting New Mexico then I think it`s real close to the time to put up the insulating plastic on the windows. :thumbsup:

In the middle of Kansas its getting pretty nippy at night - 40's or so.
Afternoons get mid 70's but not for long Im sure
The leaves are falling like crazy!

Farmers are saying that it is going to be an early winter.
Wheat harvest was exceptional this year

I live in an old house. Well over 100 years old with the original windows that leak like sieves.
Put up the 3M indoor window kits and a ton of window and door weather stripping already
That helped a little but not much. Am going to have to put plastic up this weekend on the outside as well

My heating bills are gonna kill me this winter!!

I heard Aspen got a foot of snow yesterday
Not looking forward to another brutal winter in the great plains!

Lived in a century home growing up. Still remember my parents winterizing the ol` house. One thing that nothing was ever done for was wall insulation. It had none. :thumbsup: Probably much like yours Eyesee.
Ever look into blown-in insulation? There was no such thing back then.
Still had old storm windows to. Had to help Dad swap between screens and glass every year. Was a two story. The second floor was no fun. :flowers:

Was 70 here this morning (amazingly high for this time of year and it might have got up to 75 today with rain and good winds. The tornado watch last night was unusual but then so is not having a frost so far so who knows.

Speaking of old houses.

We had cast iron radiator heat when I was in school.

Remember hovering in front of and drying stuff on them.

40 degrees this morning and the wind has moved on. ThunderZ, seems I am a few hundred miles north of you.
Wind gusts topped out at 78mph up here. Now we're just watching for the snow.
