Happy Radiatory Day!

It's officially fall in San Francisco! With the recent biting cold weather, our apartment building's boiler was turned on last night for the first time in months. I immediately opened up all the radiators in our apartment and savored the the clanging, whistling warmth.

Of course, this is really just "fall.1," the first flash of cold that comes before things heat up in September. Fall.2 comes in October. I'm already getting far ahead of myself and thinking about Halloween, my birthday and Christmas. Fall is my favorite time of year!

It has been a little cold lately but I refuse to turn on the radiator until October.

Don't fight it! Embrace the radiator! Wear wool tights in August! Hooray!

I've already turned my heater on a few times this summer. Right now it's off. The forcast for SLO today was 85 degrees. -marga

There were times earlier this summer that I really wished the radiators were working! That's the trouble with steam heat, you have to will your landlord into stoking the fires!
