I have lived down south all of my life and then I managed to get a job up north. I got a nice office job, home and made new friends. I came down in the springtime and I was shocked at how cold it was there. I had to use my apartment’s heating system right away. People were walking around in shorts while I was bundled up and blasting by my heater. What was much more shocking was the summer. First the summer’s up north are not that impressive. It still gets warm, but not like the heat that I had been expecting. But what was probably the most shocking was what northerners did to cool their homes. I went to my friend that I met at work’s home. It was the summertime and I was excited to be in A/C. Instead I walked into a stuffy home with several fans. I asked her where the place that the cooling system was. She laughed at me and said that will nobody uses air conditioning in this town. Apparently they only get a few weeks of heat in the summer time. I was just experiencing a much warmer summer. Since it does not really get that hot, nobody possess central air conditioning in their homes. I can’t quite possibly imagine not owning an air conditioner. It was eventually a staple in my youth home. We always used our AC and kept it thoroughly clean. We used it basically all year and would could not live without it. People down here don’t even own a normal way to cool themselves. They use box and window fans that do nothing to cool the surroundings.
