Every Winter time I go back up north to help my mother teach dance classes, coming to the north in the Winter time is brutal.
After living most of the year in the south, my body has adjusted to better weather.
The northern Winter time is not just cold, it is brutal. The first thing that hits me is the dry air quality. With the snow, ice & heating equipment, there is no moisture in the air, however my nose consistently bleeds while in the winter. My lips chap, skin rashes & I have static hair the entire season. I get where I can’t wait to return to my southern beach lake house & think that attractive humidity. Sure, a humidifier could be paired with my parent’s heating equipmentâ€¦ But, the lake house is so big I don’t see it doing much. The oil furnace system can’t even take a break to allow the air to be normal. From the start of fall until around the middle of Spring my parent’s run the heating equipment. The oil furnace never can be officially checked by an Heating as well as Air Conditioning company either. The heating component needs to be off & cooled down in order to be cleaned, oiled & calibrated. In the north, sometimes it feels adore going from 1 Winter time to the other. There simply is no time to get the oil furnace checked out, but usually my parents wash it themselves & just hope for the best. So that means the oil furnace is noisy, dirty & sometimes quits while in the night. It is nice teaching classes with my mother, not so nice staying at their lake house with the horrible heating.
