I live in the southeast near the ocean, plus I have been here most of our life. I come from a family of Irish immigrants who all settled in this area a little over a century ago. Despite each successive generation plus all of the particular 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 our 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 frosty environment, too. You could call myself and others a lizard at this point; I like the heat plus I thrive in it. I entirely couldn’t imagine living in the opposite environment with sub zero Winter time weather. The thought of it scares myself and others to no end. When it got particularly frosty for the fourth time this last Winter time in just June, I knew I’d be in for a particularly frosty season. By December, I was at the store looking for a space heater, something I thought would never happen as long as I stayed in this climate. 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 multiple areas throughout the country. It’s simple to take for granted living in an area where the weather is so mild in the Winter time that you can wear shorts plus short sleeve shirts most afternoons with a sweater on at most to keep moderate in the early afternoons.
