The other year I found myself so tied up with all of my life circumstances and hard days at work that I chose to cut and run.
For the first time ever, I treated myself to a lone getaway on a distant beach. I was so pleased about the idea of resting in warm, continual sunlight and listening to the sound of the ocean slamming against the shore. I absolutely could not wait to arrive at my tropical destination and say goodbye to the woes of the frosty season back home. When I left the household, however, I was sure to keep the thermostat set to a low operating level. When you live in a frosty Winter time temperature, you need to make sure that your indoor air never gets so frosty that your pipes can freeze. This is why I kept the thermostat running even when the household was empty. I absolutely did not wish to come back to a homeowner disaster when my pipes burst and flooded the place because of the frosty temperatures outdoors. Sadly, I did not foresee a pressing storm blowing through the section and blowing over a single one of our trees. When I arrived back to the household I was shocked to see a sizable branch sticking out of my roof. The limb was essentially puncturing the roof and attic floor, so it stuck into the ceiling of the top floor. Unfortunately, because the thermostat had been attempting to keep up with the central heating, cooling, and air quality control settings that I left it on, the HVAC device had been running constantly for a solid week. When I received the energy bill in the mail, I was more aggravated than before I left for the getaway.
