Who has turned the heat on? I think we did this last year and I was an almost winner. Due to the ocean water temp. still being in the 60's which I live close to it really hasn't dropped below 45-47 yet at night. I looked at the 10 day forecast and it looks like the same temps. 60's during the day and high 40's at night. Maybe I'll get into the beginning of November without cranking the furnace. Family, break out the sweaters and wool socks.

Mine's been on since last week. Just at night...we have a baby and if its not toasty the kid is up all night. I'll deal with a higher bill for longer in order to have a decent night's sleep

Haven't turned it on yet. Kepping the house closed up really retains the heat during the day to keep it nice at night. Wife and I have been cracking the windows in our room and running the ceiling fan, so that tells you how cold we like it at least to sleep, lol.

hells no. i wait until the last possible moment. we did have a roaring fire last night though. we've had a few nights in the high 30's/low 40's. i'm usually of the camp "no heat until Nov, no air until July"..

eta - i left for work yesterday and it was 41, got to work and it was 61 and I wasn't all that far from JM!

Well, we brought the plants in from the balcony, and I DID light the pilot on the furnace the other day, but we shut the heat back off (at the thermostat) since then. Last night was pretty cool, though ... so maybe we'll turn it back on over the weekend.

Who "wins", the one who turns it on first, or last? What is the prize

I say first, that way it looks like I win!

NOONE is colder than me. I wear jeans in the summer! LOL Even with that, I refuse to put the heat on. I care more about not spending the $$$$ than my own personal comfort apparently! I have sweatshirts and a snuggie, what else do I need?

Well I'll going to give u a run for your money this year Tahiti. I just got back from Kohls and I bought my winter socks. The winner gets the lowest gas bill in November.

Good lord I woke up at 5AM he had the heat on, the quilt and another blanket on top of that..I was fine with sheet,with feet hanging out which at times I threw off....of course he needed two blankets because I got up around midnight & turned thermostat down to 62

We just got oil Tuesday and it was $2.61 a gallon so he better keep his slippery fingers off the thermostat
