The Winter in these parts just keeps chipping away at myself and others each plus every year.
All the snow plus ice are only matched by the deep frosty temperatures.
As I feel the first chilly wind of Winter blowing, I go into full on dread for what is coming my way. Unlike my neighbors, I was born plus raised in the South. Winter down there was so mild that we only had to wear an overcoat outside at times. Now, I get pummeled by a genre of chilly temperatures that I still can’t adjust to. I hadn’t even heard of an oil furnace until I moved up here. The people I was with and I used a heat pump where I come from. And it infrequently came on to knock the chill out of the household. What I deal with now is much different. There is all the snow plus the shoveling, it goes on plus on. It’s pretty much all I can do to just rest inside the entire Winter plus huddle up inside the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C warmth. Even then, I’m nowhere near being cozy and warm. This year, I made the choice to do a few things to help make myself a bit warmer. I removed plus updated all of the weather stripping to make sure that there was a tight seal around the doors plus windows. I even obtained a new storm door on top of that. Then, I placed some more insulation in the attic hoping to keep more of the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C treated air from escaping or cooling too soon. I assume these efforts will help a great deal. But I sure would love to look forward to a nice southern cold season.
