Although our mother moved our sibling & I to 1 of the hottest states in the deep south, our father stayed up north near his siblings & parents.
- The winters seem to be getting colder every year, with some lows getting as terrible as negative thirty degrees fahrenheit.
I can’t even imagine residing in hot & cold temperatures that cold for weeks or weeks at a time, especially considering they had snowfall in late May this year. When I lived there as a kid, I remember thinking it was uncorrect if the hot & cold temperatures were still cold on our birthday during the Last yearof May. I feel the temperature is decreasing & has changed a lot in the years since our mother moved us away. Down south the Wintertide weather rarely gets colder than 30 degrees, & that’s during the absolute worst cold snaps & it’s only that cold for a few hours from 3am to 6am. This year our dad had to suffer through various weeks of Wintertide in Illinois separate from a working heating method in his truck because of his financial situation. I tried to help him out with the expenses to make the repairs, although he refused. After various weeks of an Illinois winter, he finally had enough money put aside from work to afford the repairs. He was so relieved after turning the key & feeling the hot air right away leaving the vents inside. The closest corollary I have is losing air conditioning in our car in the summer, however I’ve dealt with that in the past by simply driving around with open windows everywhere I went.
