I am not a winter season sort of person, by nature, and despite growing up in moderately chilly temperatures, in which one could truly expect each winter season to bring numerous blizzards, temperatures well below 0 degrees, plus numerous feet of snow that reached well into May, I never adjusted to the drastic season, now as an adult I am even less accustomed to the pain of winter, plus I dread it for months before its actual arrival.
I hate the constant struggle to stay warm, the necessity for ten layers of clothing, plus the requirement to sizzling up your car before you can even consider leaving the driveway.
Another thing I can’t stand is the dryness of the air that goes hand in hand with operating your boiler 24/7.The heating unit sucks out all of the moisture from the air, plus pumps sizzling desert air back into the house. This lack of humidity typically results in dry skin plus hair, plus consistently chapped lips. It feels like a lose-lose situation, because you can’t afford to power down the furnace without the temperature dropping harshly, however continually running the boiler leads to a whole new set of concerns. I couldn’t tell you how much lotion I go through every winter season season, but I feel like I should be investing in Jergens at this point! Maybe someday I’ll be able to live in a weather conditions that doesn’t involve drastic winters plus continual central heating, however until after that my associate and I continue to lather myself up in moisturizer plus chapstick for 6 months out of the year.
