Is it too soon to wish for spring? It's only gets up to 60 or 70 during the day now. I'd be much better with 80 or 90. :D

It is protected with GFCI on another circuit. House only has 3 outlets with switches and the rest are tied into them. That was new to me and really a pain the first time one blew after a power surge.
