It’s been very windy and cold today and the sun was only out for a few minutes this morning.
The sky has been gray the rest of the day.
There isn’t a single hint of blue in the sky. When it’s cold and windy like it has been today, 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 worried about snow. I still don’t like when it rains, especially when it’s really cold. I already turned on the furnace this morning when I woke up and I realized that the sun wasn’t coming out. I don’t mind using the furnace sporadically, especially when we have cold and rainy weather for a couple of days in a row. It’s clear from the forecast that the entire weekend is going to be dreary and dark, so running the heat is a great idea. Even if it’s temperature stays in the 40s, it will still be really chilly inside. I live in an older house and there’s a lot of places that are quite drafty. The living room is really bad because of all the windows and doors. Anytime I wake up and it feels cold, I turn on the furnace. I don’t like 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 and realizing that you don’t have any heat. That doesn’t happen to me since I upgraded to a new gas furnace with a 99% AFUE rating.
