The big day is here. Things have already been winding down– I’ve been away since Wednesday, but J. reports only one fire since then, and that only because she was hosting a cupcake-decorating party yesterday. But today is the last scheduled fire* (to warm the house a bit for a baby shower event.) (Would you accept an invitation to a baby shower at this place? These are brave people.)
It’s 36º out this morning, but sunny, and the kitchen is still holding the cupcake-fire-heat well at 55º. The forecast for the next 10 days is showing highs generally around 44º, and lows around 33º. We should be fine from here out. I’ll post a summary of our whole-winter heating-fuel usage soon.
(* As previously noted, possible exception to be made in the case of a big snowstorm. But alas, nothing of the sort in sight.)
