I know swarms of people who swear they love living in our area because they couldn’t stand to be in a temperature that’s the same all year round. They insist that season changes make them happy, and they can’t imagine having one set of weather conditions all year. There are too many wonderful things to look forward to in each passing season, they say, and it would be no fun if they had the same weather constantly.
I say they are morons. Every season is hard here, and the longest season always seems to be winter. Six months of brutally cold air! The temperature is always in the single digits, and that’s not considering the frosty wind chill! We spend all our time indoors, because leaving the comfort of a furnace for even a moment is insufferable! We’re practically glued to our central heat. I go for every air vent in my apartment, trying to soak up any bit of heat possible.
Winter is long and boring, and it seems spring will never arrive! Imagine dreaming all season of warm air, as well as of being able to free yourself from your furnace at home! The thought of being comfortable without it is amazing. It’s a desired treasure in the distant future; Every day, waking up to the hum of my furnace feels like defeat.
