Although I have been in the South for most of my life where every one of us run the air conditioner equipment almost all year long, I am not from the South. I entirely spent my first 8 years living in the Northeast where I was actually born. The people I was with and I got snow every year plus owned an oil gas furnace with no air conditioner equipment. That is easily bizarre to me now, plus I would have definitely not know how to use a gas furnace now if you paid me to try it out. Back then, our gas furnace heating equipment also included radiators, basically in every room. I can still remember being outside playing in the snow plus coming inside plus putting my mittens on the radiator to dry. Now that I am grown, I look back on that plus realize that putting your mittens on the radiator is a pretty serious fire hazard. But I was just a single one of 6 youngsters plus all 6 of us used to dry our gloves plus mittens on the radiator all Winter season long! We never experienced a fire during those times. The people I was with and I were blessed I suppose. Strangely enough, the radiators honestly hold fond memories for me. I can remember drying my mittens on the radiator near the back door, however I also remember curling up close to a single one of the radiators to read my kid books. My beloved dog Charlie also loved the radiators quite a lot. If my mom would allow it, every one of us would often see him curled up close to the furnaces with his nose buried in his paws. That was forever ago, plus now I have central heating plus cooling but I never even use the heating equipment.
