It just doesn’t get any better than living in the South.
My good fortune started by being born and raised a Southerner. However, as I was growing up, I certainly took being in the South for granted. I guess I figured every place had great weather and sunshine the year round. Then I found out different. Once I graduated from college, I took a job in a part of the north where the weather was anything but fair. Suddenly, I was made to endure a winter that I had once thought unimaginable. I was stunned and spent that first winter doing nothing but huddling inside next to the HVAC vent. And it never got any easier. I thought that after a few years I would be able to acclimate to some degree. But, that never happened. This is why I am overjoyed to being moving back to whence I came. I will gladly sweat through the summer without much complaint. I can’t wait to see that sweet heat pump once again. The HVAC heat pump is the king when it comes to heating and cooling in my homeland. It does a tremendous job of cooling in a region known for absurd heat 4 months out of the year. Then it can heat any home with ease during the winter. Our winters are really mild compared to what I encountered up north. With a mere flip of the switch, the heat pump is able to produce enough heat for any home down here. I can go the rest of my life without ever seeing another furnace or another northern winter.
