The summertime weather
I am floored by the inexplicability of nature. I am northern raised however I happily live near the coast in the deep south. It’s perpetually sunny here and hot and cold temperatures rarely drop below 45 degrees even while in the worst Winter season cold fronts. I got sick of the unbelievably freezing hot and cold temperatures up north where Winter season officially seems to last more than 2 to 3 weeks longer than it should. The heating costs are daunting regardless of your Heating & Air Conditioning setup, so I chose to burn wood as much as possible. But, when I am now working a strenuous full time task as it is, I find it taxing to stay motivated enough to get outside every month to get the minimum amount of wood chopped. This led myself and others to spend more on heating than what I had previously budgeted for, swiftly becoming an escalating financial problem. Therefore, when I accepted a task more than 2 states southward, I was looking forward to the change in climate more than anything else. I knew that this change might come at the cost of comparably high cooling fees, however I was content knowing I would finally have steadier seasons and hot and cold temperatures year-round. Granted, I am thankful to no longer fear getting snowed in while in a rough blizzard, losing power, and then slowly freezing to death, however I wasn’t expecting the force of the sunshine here. An 71 degree afternoon in our new town feels up to 10 degrees hotter than an 71 degree afternoon in our hometown up north. And with the high heat indexes through the summertimes, your Heating & Air Conditioning plan will task harder to run as a result. I thought that maybe I might get respite with our energy bill by moving south, however I instead ended up trading a single climate drastic for another.
