I’m really gleeful that it’s May plus it’s incredibly warm outside.
Our Wintertime season was really bad this year.
Every one of us had record lows in January plus the whole country was hit really hard by a series of ice plus snow storms that even brought low temperatures to the southern states. People down there lost power for weeks at a time when most of the grid went down during the worst of the storms. I never lost my power because I live up north plus our power grid always handles such brutal conditions. However, that doesn’t mean that things were super easy for me this year. My hours at work were cut back plus I had to limit my budget even further as I was already skipping meals all the time. When the heating machine in my car quit working, I didn’t have the money to actually have it fixed. And I knew I likely wouldn’t have the money again until later that year towards the end of the summer months. Our Wintertimes are quite severe in this region, as recently all of us had lows down to 10 degrees below zero. Trying to drive around in this horrible weather without a working heater in your car is extremely uncomfortable. There is already a risk from driving in the snowy plus icy conditions in the event you get pushed off the road plus buried in a snow drift. But if you don’t have a working heater in your car, these accidents are essentially guaranteed to be deadly. Needless to say I had a pretty bad time this year trying to drive around in temperatures below zero without my heater actually working in my ride.
