    Same here. I'll need to catch up with someone soon though. Maybe a small group if dates jive. I always like early-mid Nov when you can catch the very last touch of fall.

    The fans range from about $30-80 or so. I went with a cheap $32 version and it works great. Just moving the heat around a little makes a big difference. Also nice for those who like white noise.
