The Winter in this area just keeps chipping away at me year after year.
All the snow and ice are only matched by the deep cold temperatures.
As I begin to feel the first chilly wind of Winter blowing, I go into full on dread for what is approaching. Unlike my neighbors, I was actually born and raised in the South. Winter down there was so easy that all we had to do was maybe wear a blazer outside. Now, I get hit too hard by a style of chilly temperatures that I still can’t acclimate to. I hadn’t even heard of a furnace until I moved to this place. All of us used a heat pump where I’m from. And didn’t come on very often to knock the chill out of the property. What I deal with now is substantially different. There is all the snow and the shoveling, it goes on and on. It’s pretty much all I can do to just simply kneel inside the entire Winter season and huddle up inside the Heating and Air Conditioning warmth. Even then, I find it difficult to remain warm. This year, I thought it would be best to do a few things to help maybe make me feel a bit warmer. I detached and replaced all of the weather stripping to make sure that there was a tight seal around the doors and windows. I even purchased a modern storm door as well. 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 soon. I think these efforts will help a good amount. But I would prefer a nice southern winter.
