Two years ago we turned the furnace off March 1st. Last year we shut down the wood stove March 7th (delayed a few days due to hosting a baby shower.) And this year? Are we ready to fire-down in 7 days? On the one hand, it is getting warmer outside. I’m pretty sure we’re done with below-zero (F) temps, and maybe done with single digits, too. The days are often up to 30, and when it’s sunny at midday you can actually feel the heat reflecting off the snow.
Ah yes. The snow. Just glancing out the window, you’d never guess we’re 20 days from spring. It looks like the north pole out there. Which I think is what induces some skepticism about the idea of shutting down the heat any time soon. So what will happen?
