It seems that the HVAC system in my home has been running non-stop for the past three weeks. Quite frankly, I find it a bit depressing! Don’t get me wrong I truly love when it is hot out although I am not a fan of when it is in the upper 90’s and I start perspiring the minute I walk out of the door in the morning. Nor do I relish the thought of the utility bill that comes along with trying to keep my house cool and comfortable. I also have a horrific commute to work and often I spend up to an hour or more on the thruway because of traffic. I can’t even roll the windows in the car down in this heat so I am stuck in the air conditioning there too. Honestly, we deal with this every year and you would have thought that I would be used to it by now or at least have found somewhere else to live, however the truth is I love it here. This is my hometown and where my friends and family are. To pack up and leave just because it is unbearable for a couple of months out of the year seems a bit foolish. All winter long, I wish for warm weather, and then when it arrives, I dread having to use the air conditioner. I guess finding the perfect climate is nearly impossible and I should just be thankful that I have a working HVAC system. Many people don’t have that luxury and must just try and deal with the heat.
