The heat came on last night, about 7-10 days earlier than usual. You wouldn't want people to come from chilly homes when they vote on Sunday.
It's not like it's been cold enough for the heat to be on either. Yes, today there was snow falling out of the sky, but it didn't stick, and my apartment was still 72 degrees when the heat came on (with windows open). It's been sunny and in the 60s recently. I was hoping for a few more days to try to cool off a little more. I won't quite wish for 60-degree indoor temperatures this winter like we had last year in Tokmok, but I won't enjoy having the apartment this warm all winter either.
