    We're 20 deg. lower here but I just got home and feel like turning the a/c on. I'm cranking it up early this year. This weekend or next for sure. That's early, usually April 15 is when I do it.

    ^ That means we're going to get it later on today. Maybe it'll snow enough to cancel me getting up tomorrow at 5:30. Fingers crossed.
