    Just got my gas bill for november. Wasn't high, but seemed a bit much for november. I'm trying to get my reluctant wife to wean off the radiators altogether when I'm not home--we're getting there ;)
    Anyway, checked the weather data for my area, and was surprised to find that 11/12 had 580 heating degree days. That means that it was colder than:
    11/10, 2/11, 3/11
    11/11, 12/11. Almost as cold as 2/12, which had 600.
    12/10 was our coldest month in the last 3 years with 988. 260 so far this month.

    If you have no idea what I'm talking about (but aren't bored so far), check this out.

    Average HDD's around here is about 8300. Don't know how that breaks out monthly, but would be interesting......I guess.;)
