Wintertide has been way too freezing this year for our taste.
I am entirely not the kind of man who enjoys the Wintertide weather. When the temperature gets down below 50 degrees or so, I just get in a bad mood and start wishing for the sun. I recognize that means I am truly living in the wrong section of the country. It gets entirely freezing here, and the temperatures are routinely in the teens and even in the single digits during the winter. This year, it has been even colder than normal! People around here have entirely been having a hard time keeping their homes hot enough for the weather. If you do not have great insulation or a great gas furnace, then you have been in real trouble around here this year. I recognize that the heating and cooling companies here in town have been having a hard time keeping up with demand because homeowners have been over using their gas heating systems and electric heating systems this year! Parts have been wearing out, and therefore Heating and Air Conditioning specialists have been going out on call to get heating systems fixed up so people will not be freezing to death! At least most of the people around here have some sort of backup gas furnace in their beach lake house just in case their furnace stops laboring. We have a wood burning fireplace in our house. Of course, that’s not going to get us through the whole entire winter, but if our furnace goes out then at least the people I was with and I will have some source of heating to use till the people I was with and I get it fixed.
