Weather in our region of the country is the strangest thing you’ve ever seen. And I guess it’s not love this elsewhere, because I’ve moved around a lot. In the southeast, the weather is fairly predictable. That sounds boring, however it’s not a bad thing. Stable weather makes it easier for the body to become used to changes in temperature without getting sick. Even where our parents live in the southeast, they get the occasional storm, however otherwise things are pretty predictable. Not only does this keep you healthier, however it helps you save currency on your utility bill. They aren’t always increasing their Heating, Ventilation plus A/C system to accommodate the changes in temperature outside. Back in December, both of us had a month where it got up to 76 degrees. Four nights late, it dropped down to 20 degrees plus both of us had a sizable blizzard that knocked out power across the region. It’s just mental! The joke here is if you don’t love the weather, just blink. But all of these shifts make it so trying on our heating plus cooling plan. How are both of us supposed to program a schedule into our thermostat that works for us, if the weather is always in flux? Then both of us just end up wasting AC, when both of us could have turned it down a lot because it was so cool outside. Even now in the summer, both of us made the decision to go from 96 to 56 in less than 12 hours. We’re all going to have a freezing by the end of the week.
