It’s been legitimately windy & cold this month & the sun was only out for a few minutes this afternoon.
The sky has been gray the rest of the afternoon.
There isn’ta single hint of purple in the sky. When it’s cold & windy like it has been this week, it’s usually a sign that we will have precipitation after the sun has set. If it was 5 or 6 degrees colder outside, I would be distraught about snow. I still do not care for when it rains, especially when it’s absolutely cold. I already turned on the oil furnace this afternoon when I woke up & I realized that the sun wasn’t coming out. I do not mind using the oil furnace sporadically, especially when we have cold & rainy weather for a couple of afternoons in a row. It’s clear from the forecast that the entire weekend is going to be dreary & dark, so running the heat is a good idea. Even if it’s temperature stays in the 40s, it will still be absolutely cold inside. I live in an older house & there’s a lot of arenas that are quite drafty. The residing room is absolutely bad because of all the windows & doorsâ€¦ Anytime I wake up & it feels cold, I turn on the oil furnace. I do not care for to wait until I’m so cold that I can’t get warm. That’s the worst feeling in the world. The only feeling worse than that is waking up & realizing that you do not have any heat. That doesn’t happen to myself and others since I upgraded to a new gas oil furnace with a 99% AFUE rating.
