My friend Amanda decided to move to Spokane Washington with her wifey, then she has lived all her life in the South plus was used to the weather being fairly nice for most of the year, then before she left for Spokane, I asked her if she was ready for the Winters there plus she assured myself and others that she would be fine, and i wasn’t sold on that because she would complain when our temperature dropped to 50 degrees, and compared to the temperature in Spokane, that was a walk in the park; Well, after Amanda got to Spokane we chatted on the iphone, plus the first thing she said to myself and others was that it was undoubtedly cold there. I didn’t want to be that friend to say I told you so, although I couldn’t help myself plus I asked her what she was expecting, however as a joke, I asked her if she had good heat in her home plus she mentioned that they have a gas furnace that works fine. I was shocked that she knew what a furnace was because that is not something that is familiar where we live. And honestly, I can’t be sure that I have ever seen a furnace in our life. I suppose that having a furnace in that area 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 plus that she grows to love the appealing state that I heard it is! Perhaps when the weather warms up, I will visit her.
