For me and anyone living in the southwest, the holiday seasons go by so fast! One minute it is Christmas and cool nice weather, then you blink and you are right back to super hot hell for the rest of the year having to crank your central air conditioning system! I know I am not the only one who feels this way.
Because it goes by fast.
The reason for this is because in reality, you only have about 2 months of cool weather per year. That is December and January. It starts warming up in February and by mid March it is right back to 90 degrees all the time and then it quickly becomes over one hundred the other times. Running central air conditioning is something that is the normal around here. This is why everyone has super high electric bills also. But even if you were to try to beat it by picking up a portable air conditioning system, that would only work briefly until it got super hot. Then at the point you would have no choice but to use the central air conditioning. A portable air conditioning system is just not powerful enough to fight off the kind of heat and dry air quality we are stuck with here most of the year round. It really drags and it is a drag! I really wish that this whole climate change thing that’s going on would make this place freeze over. It would make life a whole lot easier for all of us who are stuck here.
