My entire family lives up north in the same general area. The older I get, the more I appreciate having almost everyone being so close. Every single year, the group of us have a serious family competition, plus it’s something I look forward to each plus every year! My parents, sister, brother, plus myself all get excited for our traditional heating device competition. Once fall respectfully starts, the group of us each attempt to hold off switching the heating on, as we all live in separate households. It’s all lighthearted fun, however it’s proved to be more challenging in some years in the past. For example, last year the temperature didn’t actually drop below 60 degrees until the end of October. Our heat competition kept going on forever, because nobody needed heat when the temperature was so high! My parents ended up winning the contest, because they didn’t switch on their gas heating device until a few weeks before Thanksgiving! The year before last, the group of us had a massive snow storm at the beginning of September. It was the most crazy thing, plus no weatherman could explain why the group of us were getting snow so early… Needless to say, the group of us all switched on our gas furnaces incredibly early that year. I can’t even recall who won, because it didn’t really feel like a competition at that time… All of us all needed heat, plus the group of us were in a hurry to get our Heating plus Air Conditioning device tested just like almost everyone else in the area. Currently, we’re all competing at the moment, plus the temperature is finally starting to lower. I can’t wait to see who holds out on switching on their gas heating device last this year!
