It’s hard for us to put into words what it’s been like experiencing our first legitimately extreme Winter.
Having grown up where the worst Winter season meant switching the A/C system to our furnace, we were woefully unprepared.
For us, Winter was something that we consistently looked forward to. After 8 weeks of an intense summer season, where the heat forced us inside to the A/C, Winter was anticipated. Then this happened. We accepted jobs plus took it without thinking about how we would acclimate to such an extreme climate. It’s just too cold, and our first introduction to it was swift plus brutal. We weren’t in our modern home yet, but a few weeks before, the cold Winter winds began. We cranked up the furnace for the first time in our life before October. From there on, it has been a massive struggle with our only blessings being the furnace. Thankfully, this house got a modern furnace before we moved in. It was the first time we’d even seen one and we already love it. It does a wonderful job of at least allowing us to feel warmth somewhere. Our office Heating, Ventilation and A/C is either set too low or too high. Coming home to our cozy house with the Heating, Ventilation and A/C setting just right is at least one thing we have going for us. We’re not sure how long we’ll last up here or if we’ll ever get accustomed to this sort of weather. However, we suppose that we are very thankful for the cozy comfort of the furnace.
