The Wintertime in these parts just keeps breaking me each plus every year.
All the snow plus ice are only matched by the terribly freezing temperatures. As I actually experience the first chilly wind of Wintertime blowing, I go into full on dread for what is coming my way. Unlike my neighbors, I was born plus raised in the South. Wintertime down there was so mild that all we had to do was maybe wear an overcoat outside. Now, I get struck by a type of chilly weather that I still am unable to adjust to. I hadn’t even heard of an oil furnace until I moved up here. The group of us used a heat pump where I come from. And it actually infrequently came on to take the chill out of the residence. What I deal with now is substantially different. There is all the snow plus the shoveling, it goes on plus on. It’s pretty much all I can do to just simply sit inside the entire Wintertime plus huddle up inside the Heating plus A/C warmth. Even during that time, I’m nowhere near being cozy warm. This year, I made the choice to do a couple of things to help maybe make me feel entirely warmer. I removed plus substituted all of the weather stripping to make sure that there was a really tight seal around the doors plus windows. I even obtained a current storm door too. Then, I put some extra insulation in the attic hoping to keep more of the Heating plus A/C treated air from escaping my home. I suppose these efforts will help to a certain degree. But I sure would prefer to be going through a nice southern Wintertime.
