My first winter season in a southern state

I was born in the midwest, grew up in the midwest, and began my adulthood in the midwest.

t’s not to say that I was fond of the weather and terrain, so much as I lived there based on familiarity.

Truthfully, the temperature there was awful and left a lot to be desired. The Springs were short and muddy, the summers were warm and humid, and the falls were shocking and fleeting; the winters, however, were the worst part of it all. I cannot tell you how much my buddy and I relied on our central heating to survive each and every afternoon. It was nearly impossible not to arrive home and instantly find an air vent to stand in front of to thaw basking in the slow emission of hot air. The furnace was running always, and it was often put on full power to combat certainally cold weather. That’s why I’m so excited to be living in the south this year for a totally new winter season experience. I’ve heard that the air temperature will not get lower than freezing, and I don’t have to worry about snow or ice. The house won’t be freezing cold inside every afternoon, and I won’t need to operate our furnace 24/7. I also won’t need to supplement the central heating with space boilers or the fireplace. I’m genuinely excited about the savings that I can look forward to when my energy bill arrives each month, not to mention the overall increase in quality of life when I don’t have to worry about literally freezing to death outdoors!
