I live in the southeast near the ocean, and I have been here most of my life.
I come from a family of Irish immigrants who all settled in this section a little over a century ago.
Despite each successive generation and all of the certain people throughout our sizable family tree, most of us have stayed in this small little community here in the south. I considered traveling far for school however opted to attend an in-state school where I’d be close enough to my family to visit correctly, while also paying less on tuition by avoiding out-of-state tuition rates. I just loathed the system of moving to a cold environment, too. You could call me a lizard at this point; I like the heat and I thrive in it. I genuinely couldn’t imagine living in the opposite environment with sub zero Winter time weather. The thought of it scares me to no end. When it got certainally cold for the second time this last Winter time in just November, I knew I’d be in for a certainally cold season. By February, I was at the store looking for a space heater, something I thought would never happen as long as I stayed in this temperature. But from the looks of it, the next coming Winter time is projected to be as intense as last year, with record lows expected in several areas throughout the country. It’s easy to take for granted living in an section where the weather is so mild in the Winter time that you can wear shorts and short sleeve shirts most afternoons with a jacket on at most to keep sizzling in the early afternoons.
