This autumn has been unseasonable cool in North Carolina and by no means am I complaining. Every autumn when the temperatures begin to drop and the air conditioning is no longer required it's a 'fight' to turn the heat on. Take 'fight' lightly, but the husband and I grew up in two totally different parts of the US. This Florida girl does not have that thick West Virginia blood. Florida girls can wear jeans all year long! So when the temperatures begin to drop in the 60's, well it's kind of 'cold' to us. That's when we pull out the sweatshirts and boots! I've gotten use to it over the years of living in the 'north'. I'm not in the north, but Florida is realllllllllllyyyyyy far south, so North Carolina is north to me.
So the real question is, how low does the temperature in the house have to drop below to turn the heat on? I do understand that it's cold out and I don't need the heat so high that I am wearing shorts and a tee. However, I don't think that I should have to wear pants, sweatshirt and curl up in a ball under my heat blanket and still feel cold. That is just plain unacceptable! Especially when the temperatures in the house reaches 64 degrees. The heat needs to go on!
You also know it's cold in the house when your own animals curl up together and snuggle under a blanket for hours on end. I mean they have fur for pete sake!
