This is our hour Wintertide up here plus it sure hasn’t gotten any easier. I don’t think what I was thinking when I moved from the south to the north. For sure, I could have turned down the promotion. But who does that? Had I not taken the promotion, I’d be sitting in the air conditioning of our cubicle forever. You just don’t turn down promotions plus expect to get any more chances. Still, I sure could have been more prepared to face the Wintertide up here, then when I got up here, I did not even have respected outerwear or even boots. There were no snow shovels or any of the sort of Wintertide device that I would need. Thankfully, the realtor who found our beach house made sure that I had a superb gas furnace. She took 1 look at me plus realized that I was a complete rookie when it came to winter. And boy was she right, but not only had I never experienced a Wintertide that required even a coat, I was completely unprepared for this sort of weather conditions. It’s entirely cold here plus the un-even temperatures start dropping mid October. Fortunately this year, our neighbor showed me how to prepare our beach house in order to lower the heating costs plus provide more comfort. I’m entirely blissful to have such superb neighbors because I don’t have to carry a space furnace with me wherever I go when I’m at home. But I do admit to having a space furnace under our desk at work plus that thing ain’t going somewhere.
