While the above photo was taken last March, it got pretty damn cold this weekend. So a reader sent in a great question that I enjoy wrestling with:

“Have you fired up your heat yet? I’m still holding out.”

I am sad to report that I did indeed fire up the heat this weekend. Though I only put the thermostat to 60 degrees… Are there any other holdouts or has everyone also fired up their heat after this weekend? For the hold outs – how cold does it have to get before you turn on the heat? And while we’re on the subject – what temperature do you put the thermostat to while you are home?
