Lots of reports from folks closing their windows (or turning off their air conditioners) and turning on their heat.

Counted more than 25 posts on Facebook this morning from those who said something about having to fire up their heating system.

Temperatures dipped down into the 50s last night and are expected to drop down to 54 degrees tonight.

Our propane fireplace in the bedroom kicked in overnight.  Fortunately, Clark Gas and Oil topped off our gas tank last week so we’re set for any cold snaps.

Autumn does “officially” arrive until this coming weekend.

So why the cooler than normal weather?

And what does this mean for the coming winter?
