Like previous years, I’m going to try to see how long I can go without turning on the heat during the autumn and winter.
Last year was unseasonably cold for Vancouver and by November, it was getting uncomfortable being in my apartment even when I was wearing extra clothing. On several days in November and December, I was forced to turn on the heat, lest I freeze in my own home. It was just unavoidable from a practical standpoint.
I’m hoping for more milder temperatures this year. I’ve already had to close my windows down to a tiny sliver though as the temperature has dropped down to the high single digits in the last few days. Tonight the temperature was around 10 degrees Celsius, which isn’t even all that cold but I felt down right chilly in my apartment.
I need to be more hardy if I’m to tackle this year’s challenge.
