When you think about the south, you probably think about hot summers and very mild winters.
That’s not always the case and the south has been known to get a lot of snow.
It’s not something we worry about often and, to be honest, most of us are never prepared with a snowstorm or cold weather hits. We have to start up our heaters and spend a couple of days chilly while our houses warm up. That is exactly what happened to me one winter. I was enjoying a mild fall and hoping that winter wouldn’t be too harsh. It was early in November when I woke up freezing cold. I looked out my window and couldn’t believe what I was seeing. There was several inches of snow on the ground. I quickly ran to my thermostat and turned on my heat. I heard the HVAC unit kick on and figured it would be a long time before I actually felt the warmth. To my surprise, within an hour my house was warming up. I was able to go into my bedroom, shut the door and go right back to sleep in my warm and cozy bed. I had just bought my heating unit at the end of winter the year before and hadn’t got to try it out from the start. I was so happy and surprised by how well it worked. Now I am not the least bit worried about unexpected weather in the south. I know my HVAC system works and will keep me warm no matter what the temperatures are outside.
