People take their vacations at various times of the year. Summer is popular for vacations since that is the season when everyone get time off from job in addition to university, and vacation spots are also supposed to be at their best during summertime, however a few vacationers I know, have acquired the name “snowbirds”, based on their habit of flying to warmer climes, as soon as the weather in their vicinity begins to get cold. These Winter season travellers vacation during Winter season, since someplace they go is likely to be warmer than where they live!
Last Winter season, more than one “snow bird” friends of mine busy their regular trip to the Caribbean. Swapping oil furnaces in addition to fireplaces for sunshine in addition to air conditioning, was the best, they claimed. As usual, they booked their airfares way ahead of time, on an airline with guaranteed perfect HVAC air quality. The flight was all they had wished for, however when they landed, but, they got a genuinely unpleasant surprise. The HVAC proposal at the airport was broken, so it was like emerging from lovely air conditioning on the plane, into an unbearably hot, sweaty, atmosphere.
After rapidly making their way to their hotel, my friends were finally able to relax. As on the plane, the hotel HVAC was really working perfectly. That is, until more than one afternoons later when a freak storm blew over the island in addition to totally messed up the electrical lines. The hotel did have a backup generator however it was hardly up to supplying that multi-roomed hotel with adequate air conditioning. The “snowbirds” cut their holiday short in addition to flew back into the freezing in a matter of afternoons.
Sometimes you just can’t win.
