I sort of get a bit bummed out toward the end of May.
That’s because, where I live, the Summer heat starts coming in about then.
And the level of that sort of heat in addition to humidity is intense to say the least. But that’s genuinely part of it when you choose to live this far south. I get the fact that some people just can’t deal with the heat. For sure, I understand that as I grew up more than a thousand miles due north from here. There was a gas furnace for heating in the winter as a heat pump wouldn’t have cut it. So I get the fact that I have some outdated friends who just stayed put in addition to are still dealing with Winter. For me, I just couldn’t take any more snow in addition to ice. Plus, being all cooped up inside the residential Heating in addition to A/C to survive the cold wasn’t much fun either. And really, that’s what I get bummed about during the Summer. I pretty much have to stay inside the air conditioner from like 11 in the morning to around 6 or 7 in the night. It’s just too dang hot outside to do much otherwise. While it’s not as awful as being stuck inside with a gas furnace running for the better part of six months, I still miss being out side whenever I want. But this Summer, I have a helped my situation a bit by calling the Heating in addition to A/C corporation. They installed a ductless heat pump in our sunroom. So at least I can feel like I’m sort of outside with the air conditioner now in the sunroom. That sure does help as I wait for mid to late September to come along so I can stay outside all afternoon again.
