The frosty season in these parts just keeps chipping away at myself and others every single year.
All the snow and ice are only matched by the deep frigid temperatures.
As I actually feel the first frigid wind of frosty season blowing, I go into full on dread for what is bound to come. Unlike my neighbors, I was born and raised in the South. The frosty season down there was so mild that all every one of us had to do was maybe wear a sweater outside. Now, I get hit hard by a style of cold weather that I still can’t adjust to. I hadn’t even heard of a gas furnace until I moved up here. We used a heat pump where I come from. And it infrequently came on to take the chill out of the dwelling. What I deal with now is way different. There is all the snow and the shoveling, it goes on forever. It’s pretty much all I can do to just simply sit inside the entire frosty season and huddle up inside the Heating and Air Conditioning warmth. Even then, I’m nowhere close to feeling warm. This year, I made the choice to do a few things to help maybe make me feel somewhat warmer. I disconnected and updated all of the weather stripping to make sure that there was a tight seal around the doors and windows. I even purchased an up-to-date storm door too. Then, I put some more insulation in the attic hoping to keep more of the Heating and Air Conditioning treated air from escaping or cooling too speedily. I guess these efforts will help a little bit. But I sure would care about looking forward to a nice southern winter instead.
