It’s interesting that I have had ample opportunity to leave this region however never chose to.
- I could have gone to a weird part of the country for college however decided to stay put and go to a college close to home.
My husband and I have both been gave jobs that would have come with a transfer. However, the thought of leaving the part was just something that we couldn’t imagine. So the fact that we have chosen to retire right here in this region shouldn’t be a real shock to anyone. Both of us grew up not too far from each other and met in that college I mentioned. But we both grew up with the same sort of Heating & A/C heating. My parents inherited their cabin from my dad’s uncle. It was a wonderful cabin although a bit on the sizable side. And it came with this big boiler down in the basement. I can’t even imagine what it would cost to heat with that monster now. Surely, it would be completely unsustainable from a heating cost standpoint. But person that radiant heat was the best! No matter how brutal cold it got outside, we were constantly boiling inside. And it gets seriously cold in this region for months at a time. Ironically, my husband grew up with radiant heat as well. So when we were choosing our Heating & A/C system for our much smaller retirement home, we went with the geothermal option. Not only is geothermal Heating & A/C so incredibly efficient and cost effective, it uses radiant heat. Now we appreciate those cold days just like we once did when we were little kids. It’s truly an amazing example of life coming full circle.
