I’ve consistently been the type to love warmer weather. Summer is my number one season because of the sunny weather & hot afternoons, & it consistently has been; Except this Summer has been really dreadful. When I checked my phone & saw the temperature was 112 degrees Fahrenheit, & still expected to rise a few degrees that afternoon, I couldn’t guess it! It was no longer shocking why I was covered in sweat so much & getting thirsty so abruptly when out running errands in such extreme heat. My car’s AC is cranked up as high as it can go, & I dread stepping out of the nice air conditioned automobile into the heat. I’ve entirely started speed walking between my car & my destination, trying to get inside into the building’s AC as abruptly as possible! If I know I won’t be gone long, I’ll even leave my car running so the cooling idea won’t shut down & make my car an overheated metal death trap. Without air conditioning, I don’t know how I’d survive this heat, & that’s not an over exaggeration. I’ve seen on the news that the heat has been affecting a good deal of people in the area, with over a dozen cases of heat stroke being reported in a single afternoon. Air conditioning saves lives when the heat gets bad like this. I’ve consistently considered AC a luxury, while heating is a necessity in Winter to prevent a single from freezing, but this heat wave has particularly given me an particularly new perspective on things. And while I tend to love warmer weather, I can’t wait for the temperature to finally start going down again.
