This was my choice

I am a part of a pet group on social media. Many of the members are from the UK and they are experiencing a hotter than average summer season. Many were complaining of the 85 degree  temperatures while it is well over 90 in the part of the US where I live and it has been for the past few weeks. I felt like rubbing this in until I realized that many of the UK members simply do not have air conditioners, They don’t need it most of the time. This was surprising to me. I can’t imagine not having to have an air conditioning system. In the deep south, where I am from, an air conditioning system is a necessity. I wonder what people used to do before air conditioning was invented down here. Our forebears must have been a lot tougher than we are. Or, at least, a lot tougher than I am. There are still people working outside all day with a heat index of 120.  I know I can’t speak to the toughness of all Southerners, but as for me, I go from my air conditioned home to my air conditioned car to an air conditioned building and still complain about the heat. I imagine the HVAC business will have to start picking up in the UK with summer like this one too. The only concern is, I am told there are simply not enough HVAC specialists for all of the sudden demand over there this year. So people just can not get cool in this current heatwave.
