Bowdoin College (a bit north of here in Brunswick, Maine) apparently has not yet turned their heat on (though they plan to next week). According to their student newspaper, the college saves $8,000 for every day they delay turning on the heat. That would pay for about 16 years of heat at my house! Anyway, I applaud their efforts to delay. Though waiting a few more weeks would be more impressive.
Here, no fire yet. But I’ve split three boxes of kindling, and cleared space in the basement for the two cords of wood I’m hoping will show up in the next few weeks.
