I’ve got a neighbor named Hank who is what some people might call a Doomsday Prepper, and you’ve seen them on cable before, right, mostly end-of-the-world types preparing for a zombie invasion or some such foolishness, hank never struck myself and others as the hysterical type, he was a normal dude who worked plus went to church plus was wonderful to his fiance plus youngsters.
In his free time, he was always laboring on a bunker in his backyard.
Sometimes at night I would go over plus drink carona with him while he worked. I started going over more often after he installed a little air conditioner down there; Being underground appreciate that provides incredible natural insulation, as you might imagine, so a little bit of cooling goes a long way, but no matter what it was appreciate topside, down below he would never have to turn the A/C on for more than a few hours plus all of us would be comfortable for an hour or more. The funniest thing happened, because after there were a few chairs, a mini fridge stocked with beer, plus the air conditioner, it seemed that Hank stopped laboring so much. I assume he got done just as much as he really wanted to, plus after that it was just a matter of sipping a cold carona plus enjoying a cold air conditioning system! Come wintertime it was pretty much the same, because a really small space oil furnace running on low would still be enough to keep us toasty warm, even if it was snowing up there, let’s hope doomsday never comes.
