It’s as though I get more and more down with every Winter that I have to endure.
It’s the snow and ice and wind and cold that does it.
It’s all of it and it is knocking me out! I just get an overwhelming sense of dread when I get that first freezing cold breeze in the fall. It makes me just shudder both because it’s freezing and for what it tells is coming! At least, I use the first freezing wind to remind myself that I need to have the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C tech come out to give the furnace the once over before winter. I had such a fantastic childhood growing up away from all this cold. There seemed to be just endless sunny days and clear blue skies where I grew up. The worst that Winter could give back then was maybe forcing myself and others to wear a sweater and jeans for a week. Oh man, I can’t understand why I gave all that up. I didn’t even know what a furnace was back then. We just had a Heating, Ventilation plus A/C heat pump back then and now, I get the shivers just thinking about how I’m going to handle yet another brutal winter. The snow and the ice, plus trying to keep it all at bay. It can just be too much for a Southern boy to handle. There are times I walk out to shovel, take 1 look around, and walk back inside my house. I feel like there’s no point. Thankfully, the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C does a fantastic job at keeping my house warm. So as long as I don’t move from my cozy spot, I’m fine. But, that just doesn’t happen very often. I do keep putting in for a job transfer to move back to the land of the sun and clear blue skies. I just hope that I can make it till then.
