It was our first year wintering in the South.

I never thought that I would turn out to be a Snowbird, but here I was heading south for the winter.

I had a lot of concerns with rheumatoid arthritis plus the colder air affected me in the worst way.

I was start to have a lot of poor reactions from rainy days, plus I no longer wanted to suffer from chilly, damp air. I didn’t truly guess what to expect when I headed south. My best acquaintance had been making this trek for the last 4 years plus I knew she was gleeful to finally have me join her. The heat in mid-October was worse than it was in mid-July back home. I pulled off our jacket, right away regretting the feel of the sizzling sunshine on our bare arms. I hit the doorbell plus waited for our acquaintance to answer the door. When she came through the hallway, I could see her, plus I was start to get gleeful She opened the door plus I could feel the air conditioner coming out the door. I abruptly closed the door to keep the A/C from all flooding the outside. She helped me take our bags to our family room plus asked me where I wanted the control equipment set. I thought the temperature of the room felt enjoyable plus she just shrugged. She told me that after a couple days, I would be blissful to have air conditioner. She explained how humid it would get in the evenings, plus then you could see a shower or two. I was already wondering if being a snowbird was the smartest choice for me. I could have stayed lake house plus been hot plus dry with our oil furnace, instead of cool plus humid with air conditioner.
