The Smart Thermostat works with appliances in your home to tell you how much money you’re spending.
I had a few days to burn before the end of the year, so I figured I’d take last Friday and Saturday off.Â On Thursday, a friend and I made plans to go quad riding Friday afternoon.Â Now, I should also note that I don’t really pay much attention to the weather when I’m off.Â I didn’t expect the monsoon that came on Thursday night and through Friday, but we decided to go riding anyways.
