I took all of that in stride
When I saw the job posting come up, I sort of got the idea that this might be the time to go for it. The fact was that I’d put in my time and I knew my job. The company had approached be before about moving up. But moving up meant leaving the region I called home. And that region comes with plenty of HVAC heating during our harsh winters. While this is the only sort of weather I’ve really ever known, the winter still gets to me. I just get so tired of staying inside with the gas furnace going gang busters for months and months. Plus, I frankly got really sick of dealing with the high costs of heating. So when I saw that job posting, I decided to throw my hat in the ring. It worked on a number of levels. The new job would mean relocating to the south. The timing was also pretty good as my wife and I had finalized our divorce. There were no kids and it was amicable for sure. Still, I was really up for something completely different. I heard all the horror stories about the beast of a summer. Everyone said I’d be stuck inside the HVAC cooling more than I was inside the house with the gas furnace cranking. I took all of that in stride. Now that I’m celebrating three years of living down here, I have to say that I was so not stuck inside the HVAC cooling for the entire summer. For sure, HVAC cooling is imperative but the mornings and evenings are still wonderful in this region even at the hottest part of summer.
