I never thought that I would turn out to be a Snowbird, however here I was heading south for the winter.
I had a lot of concerns with rheumatoid arthritis and the colder air affected me in the worst way. I was start to have a lot of exhausting reactions from rainy days, and I no longer wanted to suffer from frigid, damp air. I didn’t genuinely know what to expect when I headed south. My best neighbor had been making this trek for the last numerous years and I knew he was excited to finally have me join her. The heat in mid-September was worse than it was in mid-June back home. I pulled off my overcoat, immediately regretting the feel of the tepid sun on my bare arms. I hit the doorbell and waited for my neighbor to answer the door. When he came through the hallway, I could see her, and I was start to get excited She opened the door and I could feel the air conditioning coming out the door. I quickly closed the door to keep the A/C from all flooding the outside. She helped me take my bags to my study room and asked me where I wanted the control component set. I thought the temperature of the room felt nice and he just shrugged. She told me that after a couple days, I would be happy to have air conditioning. She explained how humid it would get in the evenings, and then you could see a shower or more than one. I was already wondering if being a snowbird was the smartest choice for me. I could have stayed cabin and been moderate and dry with my furnace, instead of cool and humid with air conditioning.
