Don't know about you, but we're trying to tough it out before turning on the heat. Last night was a bit chilly, don't you think? Slept with socks on and threw an extra quilt on the bed. Then I was fine.

Brrr, those cold sheets are the worst. Thinking of getting an electric mattress pad to warm up the bed prior to inserting self into same. Then turn it off as I don't like the idea of being an electric sandwich. Anyone else do this??

Too cold too soon, if you ask me.

I really don't want to start running the heat yet. It seems like we've gone straight from summer into winter. I did turn the furnace on this morning just to make sure it was working.

For now, I'm dressing in layers.

I'm looking forward to the return to 70 degree weather they're predicting for later in the week.

Yah, you're right...too cold, too soon. Body didn't have a chance to adjust--it's in shock.

Want my warm, long Fall back where it belongs. Ten day forecast looks optimistic. Warmer times a-coming in. Maybe I'll bake a pumpkin pie today and enter the spirit of these crisp days...

Smile It could be worse

We are up in the mountains for a few days. It was 35 this morning and supposed to be 32F tomorrow morning.

Everyone has their heat on here, but the leaves are just starting to change which is weird.

At least we did not have snow like State College, PA which had one of the earliest snows ever. It might be a record.

If so they can keep that record.

Yes, we're doing fine compared to most places...it's just my summer-blood is having a challenge with this unexpected cold snap...but back to normal mid-week this week--in the 70's and sunny--yippee!! Want to do some Autumn clean-up on the yard--love raking leaves when it's a pretty October day...

At least there isn't a chance of snow. We've had the "S" word mentioned a couple of times this week.

we finally broke down today and turned the heat on, just enough to warm the air a bit.

it also seems to me like we went straight from summer to winter.
don't forget about bringing your house plants inside. did that today
and had to chase off a couple of llittle tree frogs that wanted to come in.

Yes, we just got back from seeing Where the Wild Things Are (cute movie, touching) and the house felt really chilly--and damp. So my DH just fired up the heat pump..I am warmth, hear me roar...ah, I love the smell of fried dust particles in the evening air...time to change the filters, me thinks...

Yep, I agree, had to turn on the downstairs heat pump and the fireplace. High ceilings don't work that well when the weather turns cool. My wife put out the fall decorations last week, and I noticed that the Anoles have taken up residence in her scarecrow. I'll have to evict them when she puts out the winter decorations. I don't mind them being in the house but the cats would go nuts.
