Wasn’t ready for snow – came in through AC unit

I was not at all prepared for this rapid shift in air temperature and conditions.My AC units were still blowing and adding more cold air to the house, and my furnace was giving off strange smells after being turned on without a professional service appointment

There are times in life when I should know better. For instance, I grew up in the far north eastern region of the country. I am very familiar with abrupt weather changes and the onset of an intense winter without warning. I should know better than to be unprepared for a rapid shift in outdoor climate. However, I think that living in the mild and hot South for the past few years has dulled my 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 easy to plan 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 weather to come flowing through our area in the middle of fall last year. I still had my AC systems up and running thanks to be continually hot outdoor temperatures. I hadn’t prepped my cooling systems for storage for the winter or had in my furnace professionally service before cold air settled in. Of course, the weather didn’t wait for me. One morning it was suddenly freezing cold and snowing in my region. I was not at all prepared for this rapid shift in air temperature and conditions.My AC units were still blowing and adding more cold air to the house, and my furnace was giving off strange smells 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 my window AC unit to let a pile of snow into my bedroom.
