Spring is a weird time of year here in the southeast.
- It seems as if Mother Nature cannot make up her mind about which way she wants the weather to be.
It is often quite cool at night and in the early morning, but by lunchtime, I am flipping on the a/c in my car. Normally, I do not use either the heater or the air conditioning at this time of year. At least, if I can help it, I won’t. I love to save heating and cooling costs and there are only so many days per year when that is possible. Recently, it seems as if I am quite cold in the mornings, though. I am so cold, in fact, that I go right to that thermostat switch and turn on the heater most mornings. I think the poor central heating and cooling system must get confused sometimes. My mother used to tell us kids that frequently switching the unit from heater to a/c in the same day really put a lot of extra stress on the equipment. In fact, we were not allowed to do that when we were kids. I am not sure if my mother adjusted the thermostat settings in a similar fashion or not. Most likely, she did not because at that time we lived much further south than I do now. It rarely got cold down there. Well, I like having the cooler weather in the mornings and at night because very soon, it will be necessary to run the a/c all day long. Summer is coming!
