This whole lack of a fall season is just getting to be ridiculous. I don’t really understand what is going on around here, unless it’s that global warming and heating that everyone keeps on talking about. Otherwise I have no idea. Well, having no fall season is really wreaking havoc on my heating and air conditioning budget for the year. By this time of year, I’m usually all done with using my central air conditioning system and I’ve turned off my whole cooling system for the year. I like to give my air conditioning system a rest and have it cleaned and maintained by an HVAC service professional every single year before the fall kicks in for real. This year, though, I haven’t even called my local heating and cooling company to come over to do my A/C and heating inspection yet! That’s because I keep having to run my central air conditioner when I don’t even really want to. I guess I could go ahead and turn it off, but that would only be because I’m in denial that the temperatures aren’t as high as they actually are. It’s crazy. I don’t like the whole idea of this hot fall weather. I guess some people are happy to have an extended summer, but I, for one, am ready to wear my jeans and boots and sweaters! As soon as the weather begins cooling off for real, you better believe I’m going to have a call in to my favorite A/C company to get this whole fall heating and cooling maintenance thing checked off my to do list. And then I’m going to visit a pumpkin patch and drink some apple cider!
