You must be in southern Illinois.
I'm further south and have had my heat on for months. I keep it set at a temp tho so it kicks off and on.
There has been days it's been so warm that I turn it off. I think it was just last week, one day it was about
70 degrees here.
For many years, I did not get the flu or cold. I almost thought I must be immune to it. Plus, I worked in
a hospital and was around sick people constantly, yet I never got sick. I'm talking about years and years
and years, never got sick, never got a cold, never got the flu. Sure, when I was just a kid I'd get a cold.
As an adult, I never did. Then when I turned 50, it was like someone turned the switch on and said, let's
give her hxll now.
Symptoms of turning 50 to look forward to:
-Your arse gets wider
-Your hair gets thinner
-Everything you eat, shows
-Laugh lines beg to be wrinkles
-...and you get sick more often from things you never got sick from before
