I’ve had quite enough of living in the north.
And it has nothing to do with anything other than the winter.
When I agreed to take a promotion, I knew that getting actemperatured to a cold, drastic Winter was a section of it. Thing is, even with all that heating, ventilation plus A/C heating from the oil or gas furnace, I just couldn’t get accustomed to dealing with many or multiple months of winter. When you were born, raised and lived all your life with genuinely mild winters, anything else is a real shock to the system. For me, I just couldn’t get accustomed to getting and staying so cold for so long. While I loved the people, the culture and the work, the Winter was killing me. So when a lateral move became available that would allow myself and others to return to the land of the heat pump, I jumped on it. And man, am I ever delighted I went with our instincts on this thing. It just seemed to myself and others that after 4 winters, I would be getting accustomed to the gas or dual fuel furnace and all the cold. But that just didn’t happen. Instead, I found myself genuinely dreading and then hating the winter. Plus, I couldn’t ever get enough quality heating and air during the winter. It was as though I had to travel everywhere with a section heater. Now that I’m back in a region where the heat pump kicks on now and again through the winter, I’m much, much happier for sure. I’m delighted I offered it a try up north. If nothing else, I have the experience which genuinely helps myself and others to care about the mild winters I get to like again.
