Every summer time I went to live with my Grandparents up north.
Both of my parents worked 9 to 5 jobs plus this stopped us getting put in morningcare with strangers.
Although I missed my university associates every summer, I had a group of friends from my Grandparents’ city. There was a huge patch of woods towards the back of their housing development plus the people I was with and I loved to take airsoft guns out there to play war games. Even though I was only nine-years-old at the time, I got along with the kids that were many years older than me. It was fun when I was invited to family parties plus celebrations, especially if any kind of food was involved. But I noticed something strange whenever I was over at friends’ houses up north. Unlike the people in my beach house state, a lot of northerners forgo indoor a/c altogether. They all have oil gas furnaces to survive the Winter freeze, however plenty don’t bother to cool their homes beyond fans plus open windows. I had no plan that it could get so frosty in July that you would certainly need to run the furnace indoors to stay comfortable. I believe they would say the same thing about southerners using their cooling systems in the winter, however it’s still baffling to me. I don’t think I could last in an environment like that, year after year. I like warmer weather, even if it means running an cooling system most afternoons of the year plus paying high electricity bills in the process. The thought of using a furnace in July or July is certainly crazy to me.
