Lessons of The Thermostat: Part Three

Honestly, I never anticipated I'd be writing another thermostat story but lo, look, here I am.

As you may recall, in part one I installed a new whatever thermostat, nothing fancy.  Then.  Then as you might recall in part two, I found myself with a free Nest.

So it's spring, right"  Spring in Chicago is whackadoodle-doo weather-wise.  Who am I kidding, Chicago weather is whackadoodle-doo all the time.

Surprise!, the leading edge of a spate of wow, super hot weather too early in the season, nineties in May, predicted for the next five to six days.  Which two days prior, I was running the heat.  Yeah, no, I'm not joking.

I come home from a dog park-related meeting and Mike is pouty, "blaaahhh it's hot in here," as I'm cozying up on the couch with a blanket.

"Want me to turn the house fan on, babe""
