The transition from indoors to outdoors in the summer time is crazy in the south

On the flip side, when you run your air conditioning at a particularly low temperature, the transition as you walk outdoors towards your car is outrageous

About 4 generations back, our entire family immigrated here from Scotland. Roughly 90% of our family chose to stay up north upon arrival, while our great-great Grandfather plus his brother chose to raise their families in the deep south. As the rest of the family slowly rooted itself in the northeast, our part of the family enjoyed several generations of life in the sunshine. I was lucky to grow up within a several hour drive to the ocean plus have spent much of our life running along the shores plus swimming in the water. Even though I have lived down here our entire life, I still haven’t managed to fully accept the raising highs while in summer time heatwaves. It can get entirely brutal outdoors at any time between 10 am plus sundown. Because of the unbearable temperatures down here, most of us run our air conditionings taxing while in the summer time weeks. Part of the constant air conditioning use is to simply keep the indoor humidity at a comfortable level, which can’t be accomplished with easy box fans. On the flip side, when you run your air conditioning at a particularly low temperature, the transition as you walk outdoors towards your car is outrageous. It’s particularly bad if I have been shopping in the grocery store for close to an hour plus push our cart through the sliding doors into the midsummer time blaze. Maybe I won’t ever grow accustomed to the worst heat waves the deep south can throw at me, however I’ll make that compromise if it means avoiding temperatures as low as twenty below zero where our cousins live in the north.
