I turned my furnace on, yesterday. Each year, I try to wait until November 1, but that doesn’t usually happen. However, I think this year is the earliest it’s ever been turned on.
The deciding factor was when I woke up Saturday morning and the temperature in the house was 60 degrees. Though tempted to turn the furnace on then, I held off thinking the house would warm up later in the day. A few hours later, I checked the thermostat and found it was only 61 degrees. The furnace was turned on minutes later.
Global warming??? Never in Erie!
