Moving from south to north, on needing heat

Do you guess the difference between the seasons of Summer, Fall, plus Spring in the Deep South region of the country? It’s a joke, because there is no difference between those numerous seasons! During the coldest afternoons of Winter I might experience a few weeks of chilly weather, however nothing that a hoodie plus a hat can’t handle.

  • I have lived in the south my whole life, until a few weeks ago when I moved into the far north to be with my long-distance man.

I am still in the middle of my transition, plus getting used to the fact that I need to use a heating system almost every day. In my outdated house I could go for months on end without ever using the heating method once, however up here in the fantastic colorless north the house doesn’t even have an cooling system, because it is so rarely needed. Not only is there a large central heating method in the site, however there are also two back-up systems in site. In the basement there is an antique gas furnace that hasn’t been used in over a decade. Allegedly it’s still functional, however this gas furnace is so outdated plus dusty I don’t even want to touch it. Also I have a brick fireplace in the front room of the home. I like the method of a brick fireplace, however it does seem care about a lot of work when I could just click the temperature control instead. The fact that I have numerous weird gas furnaces, plus there is no air conditioning at all, still seems crazy to me!
