My neighbor Amanda decided to move to Spokane WA with her bestie.
She has lived all her life in the South and was used to the weather being fairly nice for most of the year, and before she left for Spokane, I asked her if she was ready for the Winters there and she assured myself and others that she would be fine.
I wasn’t sold on that because she would complain when our temperature dropped to 50 degrees, then compared to the temperature in Spokane, that was a walk in the park, then well, after Amanda got to Spokane all of us chatted on the cellphone, and the first thing she said to myself and others was that it was absolutely cold there. I didn’t want to be that neighbor to say I told you so, but I couldn’t help myself and I asked her what she was expecting, however as a joke, I asked her if she had good heat in her house and she mentioned that they have a gas heating system that works fine. I was shocked that she knew what a heating system was because that is not something that is regular where all of us live. And honestly, I can’t be sure that I have ever seen a heating system in our life. I know that having a heating system in that section of the country is normal for most of the households. I can imagine how cheap Amanda’s energy bill will be since they won’t rely on electricity to heat their home. Well, I hope that Amanda gets used to the weather in Spokane and that she grows to appreciate the appealing state that I heard it is, but perhaps when the weather warms up, I will visit her.
