Every winter, I can remember getting the best slumber of my life thanks to the easy access to cool, dry air.
For the longest time I insisted that I would never live through another “real” winter again in my life. I feel like I got enough Ice Cold air, snow, and ice in the first 25 years of my life. I moved to a much warmer, balmier part of the country and enjoyed the daily heat for a while. Relying on Ac was quite a change for me. Now, I suddenly find myself living back in a cold climate, where you have to think about your heating system every single day. It has been an eye opening experience. Maybe I don’t hate winter temperatures that much, if the conditions are right. For the longest time, I have been consistently saying that I hate everything about winter… But now I’m realizing it’s not quite that severe. Actually, I only hate 66% of winter. The other 33% of the time, I think that the winter temperatures are wonderful. The problem is, the portion of the season that does not bother me happens to be the same portion of the season when I’m sleeping. You see, winter temperatures are a real drag and an expensive problem to overcome when you rely on an energy inefficient forced air furnace… but they’re a gift when you enjoy sleeping in ice cold air for 8 hours every night. Every winter, I can remember getting the best slumber of my life thanks to the easy access to cool, dry air. Just open a window and you’ll sleep like a baby. In the summer, my AC had to create artificially cold air that never reached the ideal temperature. When I stop and think about it, one-third of the winter is amazing.
