Hi Bill. I never heard of “heating degree days” or “cooling degree days,” so instead of just skipping over it (and assuming that it was too complicated) I googled it. It makes sense and seems like a valuable resource. We’re expecting frigid temperatures in the next few days. Then it’ll supposedly warm to the 30s and 40s on Sunday. Hope you and your family are well. Marcia
p.s. HAPPY GROUNDHOG DAY TOMORROW!!
