I just can't wait for my electricity bills to go down. I can stand the heat - just not the cost of it.
I'll need my jacket if it got below 85.

See for us..its the winter thats more costly. Natural gas can add up in Jan-Feb. Summers are moderate bills only. I notice that each household is different in regard to what bills hurt.

lol for me now anything below 80 feels cold. I rarely used my air conditioner the last few weeks and just got my electric bill for the month and it was only 35 dollars. I got spoiled by the nice hot breezy DRY air. The temperature was 78/79 in my apartment a few mornings and to me that felt cold. I sure hope this winter isnt like last winter.

Before this humidity came back we were opening windows at night and closing them around 10 in the morning. That definitely helped with the AC bill, but I love having windows open all the time, so I'm ready. When we first moved here from the beach, I was freezing all the time. With each passing winter I adjust more and more, and now with proper clothing (usually just jeans, sweatshirt, socks) it's very enjoyable to be outside. There's nothing like a crisp day with bright sunshine!

p.s. when we visit our families in Ohio I about turn into a popsicle. I can't fathom wanting to be THAT cold!

Extended forecast for second week in October has highs around 70-75 lows in the 50 range...perfect weather for seeding.

I like the heat but my lawn does not. I think it is becoming "flammable" at this point.
