    We've finally had a day without any need for the A/C, and it's been wonderful! There's nothing like mild temperatures and fresh air. Maybe now we can reduce our electric bill for a while.

    It is 48 here and we have a small fire in the heater. It feels good to back up to it. Just hope it doesn't get to warm before morning . And good luck with your cool temps staying around for awhile. Tamsam

    My girls asked if we could sleep with the windows open last night so we did. We got up about 4:00 am and it was actually chilly inside. It got down to 58 last night. Us too....no a/c since Monday morning. Lovin' it!!!

    Up North a little further, we woke up to 48. It was actually cold...of course not having all my insulation in doesn't help either..however, I am glad to see those many 100+ days are gone.

    We've had some nightime lows in the 50s, but our daytime highs have been in the 80s. I work nights & sleep in the afternoons, so I've still been using the AC while I sleep. It's been nice to open up the house in the mornings though.

    We've had (and are forecasted to have) several days in a row with highs in the 70's, lows in the 50's, and almost no humidity. Love the Fall.
