A home that will be an investment
We recently had one of the worst winter storms we have ever experienced in my area. I have to admit that, at times, I can be a very stubborn person, and after visiting a friend the day before the storm was to roll into town, I insisted that it was perfectly fine for me to try and head home. My friend was very nervous for me and insisted that I would not be imposing if I stayed for an extra couple of days to wait for the storm to blow over. I told him everything was going to be fine and that I was an expert in driving in the snow. The problem was the trip was over 60 miles and the snow was already falling in earnest by the time I got into my car and cranked the engine up. The other problem was that my friend lived in the country and most of that trip was going to be in the wilderness where help was a considerable distance away. I believe you know where this is going. The roads became impassable a mere twenty miles from home and it was up to my heating system to keep me alive until help could arrive. Thankfully, I had made sure to fill up my tank before I left and I was able to keep my car on and running with the heat blasting. Nevertheless, it was extremely cold, colder than any cold I previously experienced, and I was genuinely frightened. Though I was able to eventually get off the road and into the safety of my own home, I cursed myself for not staying with my friend a little longer and enjoying his great heating system while the snow storm raged outside instead of being stuck in the middle of it and being forced to use my car heater for survival!
