I had a real shocker when I came into work this afternoon, but it’s late November, and a chilly snap brought temperatures in the high 30s this afternoon.
I was actually grateful for the oil furnace in our automobile as I was driving to work on our commute.
It felt so wonderful that I did not want to leave our automobile once I reached the parking garage! As I got out of our car, I took solace in the fact that at least it would be a short walk to our office where I was sure that the oil furnace was running. I walked through the front lobby doors at our office building, and I was met with a chill instead of a welcome wave of warmth. I figured they were not running the oil furnace in the lobby for some reason, then maybe the door was being opened too often. I didn’t assume about it much, because I was sure that at least in our office, it would be warm. All through the walk to our office, and even in the elevator ride, I observed that there was a chill in the air, but when I stepped out onto our floor, I could hardly know it. It was actually colder on our floor than it had been throughout the rest of the building. What on earth were the people in charge of the HVAC plan thinking? Virtually almost everyone else was just as surprised and angry as I was, how could the two of us be expected to work in these conditions? Then the two of us found out that someone actually left the a/c on! The a/c was running as if it was hot outside! Granted, it had been the previous afternoon, however someone has to keep up with the shifting weather in our fall season!
