When a promotion was granted at work to anyone willing to move to our new facility, I decided to take advantage of it.
I had been looking for a change of pace anyway so I looked upon this as a new adventure.
It was announced that our new plant would be opening around mid May so I figured that it would be a perfect time to move. The weather would still be fairly mild plus I would have time to find a arena to live before the chilly weather set in. You see, our new plant is located along the Northeast coast plus the Winter there are brutal from what I understand. I have never seen snow, let alone driven in it, so I was a bit concerned about all of that. Those of us that took the promotion were sent to training classes to prepare us for our new assignments, but well, May came plus went, so did the next more than four months after that. Now it was the middle of November plus they finally said that both of us could go to the new location. With Winter in full swing I couldn’t imagine packing a moving truck plus driving through those conditions. I flew up a few weeks prior to find a arena to live. I found a little lake house that I could rent plus my first question for the property owner was about the Heating plus A/C system. I wanted to make sure the arena had sufficient heat to keep me warm while both of us were in the long Winter months. Thankfully the owners had just installed a new Heating plus A/C system a few years ago plus it was modern plus efficient. He even showed me that they had a fully programmable thermostat so that I would not have to worry about increasing it all the time.
