I never owned an air conditioning until I moved down south! I used to live up north, I might as well have been in a weird country, but the weather ranged from cool to freezing cold.
I never really got a Summer season, however when it was a little hotter than normal, my family would each take a window fan in our study room, but other than that, there was no form of cooling needed.
Even restaurants, bars plus stores in my town did not bother with AC. The hot season was brief plus sort of a letdown, then since the freezing weather got to me after awhile, I moved down south. I figured that I just was strong plus did not need AC. I grew up with no cooling, I am made of strong stuff, dealing with freezing weather plus dealing with hot weather is a whole current critter, put me in downside temperatures plus I can sleep plus live straight-forward. The hot weather is just awful. I have butt sweat anytime I walk outside. The sweat runs down my back appreciate a little river. The humidity got so awful that I finally caved plus bought my first cooling system. It is strange having central air conditioning in my house. It is so much better than any fan. When I drive somewhere in the car, I can’t just roll my windows down for air. I need to easily have the fake freezing air in order to not sweat buckets. It is a strange adjustment, that is for sure. Who would have thought that A/C is easily that necessary?
