I had not prepped our cooling systems for storage for the Winter time or had in our furnace professionally service before cold air settled in! Of course, the weather did not wait for me.
There are times in life when I should know better, then for instance, I grew up in the far north eastern region of the country. I am legitimately regular with abrupt weather changes plus the onset of an intense Winter time without warning. I should know better than to be unprepared for a rapid shift in outdoor climate. However, I feel that living in the mild plus sizzling South for the past few years has dulled our sense of urgency when it comes to outdoor weather conditions. Most of the time, you know what to expect in the South. It’s hot. It’s straight-forward to program your life around it. However, living up in the north I was pretty accustomed to the weather shifting wildly from week to week. I should have known that that was still an option, no matter where I was living. Foolishly, I was unprepared for Winter time weather to come flowing through our section in the middle of fall last year. I still had our AC systems up plus running thanks to be continually sizzling outdoor temperatures. I had not prepped our cooling systems for storage for the Winter time or had in our furnace professionally service before cold air settled in! Of course, the weather did not wait for me. One day it was hastily cold cold plus snowing in our region. I was not at all prepared for this rapid shift in air temperature plus conditions.My AC units were still blowing plus adding more cold air to the house, plus our furnace was giving off different stinks after being turned on without a professional service appointment. I was not at all prepared for this cold air. I also wasn’t ready for our window AC component to let a pile of snow into our living room.
