When I first moved to the northeast, it was in the middle of the summer season.
The weather was absolutely perfect then! The air was warm, but not hot or humid like it was down south. There was also this lovely constant breeze from the coast, so even with the warmer temperatures, I still felt cool and comfortable. I loved being able to walk around town back then, wearing clothes that I normally would save for the winter time! Best of all, I could easily leave my air conditioning system set to a neutral 77 degrees and be totally comfortable. Things were great then, but time pressed on – as did the weather. Before I knew it, the cold weather began to roll in, and I started to see a drastic change. It was a major difference! That first winter, the weather brought what seemed to be an endless snowstorm. The temperatures hovered in the single digits during the day, so I couldn’t leave my house unless I had three layers on! Not to mention, the money I saved on my energy bills over the summer had quickly been spent on the costs of running my electric furnace for days without pause. Only when my heating system actually broke down, did I actually use my fireplace to provide some much needed heating for my home. I have to say, I really wish I did some investigative work on this place before I moved, because the weather here is absurdly cold – and I can’t afford these energy bills much longer!
