One afternoon it was suddenly chilly cold & snowing in our region
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 honestly proper with abrupt weather changes & the onset of an intense Winter without warning. I should know better than to be unprepared for a rapid shift in outdoor weather conditions. However, I think that residing in the mild & hot 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 self-explanatory to plan your life around it. However, residing up in the north I was pretty accustomed to the weather shifting wildly from month to week. I should have known that that was still an option, no matter where I was residing. Foolishly, I was unprepared for Winter weather to come flowing through our area in the middle of fall last year. I still had our A/C systems up & running thanks to be continually hot outdoor hot & cold temperatures. I had not prepped our cooling systems for storage for the Winter or had in our furnace professionally maintenance before cold air settled in, of course, the weather didn’t wait for me. One afternoon it was suddenly chilly cold & snowing in our region. I was not at all prepared for this rapid shift in air temperature & conditions.My A/C units were still blowing & adding more cold air to the house, & our furnace was giving off weird smells after being turned on without a professional maintenance appointment. I was not at all prepared for this cold air. I also wasn’t ready for our window A/C component to let a pile of snow into our bedroom.
