We moved further north because we hated the heat and humidity.
My husband and I grew up way up north.
We were used to the highs in the summer months being like seventy-five degrees. It hardly ever got above eighty degrees even on the hottest of days. Well, we were both offered some really good jobs down south. We took the jobs not realizing just how much we would hate the hot weather and humidity. I cannot even explain how hard it was for us to adjust to the heat. We would run from the air conditioning building to air conditioned building because it literally felt like a furnace to us outside. We always turned our car on about twenty minutes before we had to go somewhere with the air conditioning on so that it would be nice and cool for us. We had to have the air conditioner on in our house almost year round because we couldn’t stand it if it got about sixty-five degrees in our house. The sad thing is that we never really adjusted to the new climate. We decided after living there for almost five years that we needed to move back up north. Well, we didn’t go quite as far back up north, but we went far enough for the weather to be not nearly as hot or humid. We still use our air conditioning like crazy, but it is not as bad as before. I am so thankful for air conditioning. I truly don’t know what would do without air conditioning. We would probably melt.
