I grew up in an area where the seasons are absolutely distinct.
In fact, this area is known for its brilliant several seasons.
It was pretty amazing to grow up somewhere that as you were getting sleepy of a single season, the next season was on its way in. It was charming to experience a bit of Winter time but it was nothing like a drastic northern winter. However, I now live in an area where there is virtually no real winter. I have to kick on the HVAC machine a handful of times while in the Winter time weeks. It is so mild here. The Winter time weather is more sun than just about anything else. So, I was a bit afraid when I traveled to my Mom’s for Christmas. I don’t own a bunch of long pants but I packed everyone of them. The thought of snow and chilly just made be begin to shiver before I ever left my own driveway. However, I should have let that worry go immediately. I was grateful that I borrowed a sizable Winter time coat. There was snow on the ground and the temps were in the low 30’s when I arrived. However, my Mom had his HVAC cranked to like 69 degrees. I forgot how chilly natured he was. Now that he is well advanced in years, he likes to keep his home nearly subtropical. It didn’t take myself and others but about more than four hours to change into my shorts and a tee shirt. It was so good to sit inside seeing it snow while wearing shorts. Thank goodness my Mom has excellent HVAC!
