Bundled up against that cold autumn wind yesterday, I naturally began to think about air conditioning. Safe to say the AC season has ended. So how did we do? The National Weather Service says BWI-Marshall clocked 1,315 "cooling degree days." CDDs are a measure of the spread between average daily temperatures and 65 degrees - a proxy for cooling demand. That total puts us 15 percent above BWI's average. The extra demand, along with higher electric rates, means we face the heating season a bit light in the wallet.
