I was lucky enough that I was able to leave work a half an hour early.
My home is only 10 minutes away, so I usually walk to work and walk home.
As I was walking home, I took notice of the dark billowing clouds overhead. I was hoping I could make it home before the rain hit, but just as I thought that, the storm clouds let loose and it started to downpour. I started running home, but I couldn’t run very fast without slipping. Without an umbrella, I was drenched in minutes. Since it was already a cold and windy day, the rain only made things so much colder. I started shivering as I finished my walk home. When I finally made it home, I jammed my key into the lock and went inside. I changed my clothes to warm and comfy clothes, and I immediately turned on my heating system. The furnace responded instantly, and heated air began to come out of the A/C vents. I sat next to the HVAC vent, and enjoyed the warm breeze. It took about a half an hour, but by then the heating device had warmed up my house as well as myself. It was still pouring outside, and I knew I would have to delay any plans until later tonight, when the weather was a bit better. So instead, I decided to take a nap. I collapsed in my bed and with the furnace system still working in the background, I was able to doze off quite easily.
