I love the hot summer southern when it comes to summer vacation, but I’m not sure that I could live down here all year.
I like a warm, sunny beach during the day and a nice, cool air conditioned hotel room at night.
But I can tell you that I actually living down here would be a bit of an issue with the amount of heat and humidity. I’m told that an air conditioning unit is actually necessary throughout most of the year. That’s actually crazy to me, considering the fact that I don’t really need my air conditioner five months out of the year where I am from. Some people in my area go without air conditioning altogether in favor of just having a furnace. That’s actually happens more often than not, although we do have heat waves now and again in the summer. I’ve been told it could be sixty degrees or hotter during winter where I am vacationing. Now that’s something I could never get used to! Besides, when I vacation down south, I don’t have to worry about fixing an HVAC unit. If I get a hotel room and the air conditioning is not working, I simply get a new hotel room! Always making sure that your air conditioning is fixed and ready for hot weather seems like a bit of a bore. The air conditioner at my parent’s home where I grew up lasted for fifty years! I don’t think it would have lasted nearly as long if it had to deal with the heat down south!
