No Choice: Furnace Is On

At 6:55 p.m. Thursday, October 1, 2009, the furnace is turned on at the Hosey-Dunne Estates on Buffalo's West Side.
This followed too many 55-56-degree verifiable temperature readings in our house, despite increasing our cooking and oven usage, and heaven knows how cold things got during the overnights when the outside temperature got down to at least 41 degrees, and maybe colder. Even Walker Evans laying and sleeping next to us more often, for him to use our body heat and for us to use his body heat, was no match for the ridiculous, increasingly cold weather here, nor were the space heater, blankets and comforters we used.
I did get the chance to change the filter in the furnace in the basement right after I got home from work and walked Walker. There was a thick layer of fur on the filter, combined with dust, dirt and who knows what else, and I think I need to keep better track of changing the air filter and actually do so this winter.
Yeah, I wrote that horrible six-letter word; it is definitely not here yet, but we all know that it is on its way.
