My entire family resides up north in the same area.
- The older I get, the more I like having all of my family so close! Every single year, the people I was with and I have the same family competition, plus it’s something I look forward to every year.
My parents, sister, brothers, plus myself all get extremely excited for our traditional gas furnace competition. Once fall starts, the people I was with and I each attempt to hold off switching the heating equipment on, as we all live in separate properties. It’s pretty much just lighthearted fun, however it’s proved to be a great deal harder while in some years in the past. For example, the other year the temperature didn’t drop below 60 degrees until the end of October. Our heat competition pretty much dragged on forever, because nobody needed heat when the temperature was that high! My parents ended up winning that particular contest, because they didn’t switch on their heating equipment until two weeks before Thanksgiving! The year before last, the people I was with and I had a pretty crazy snow storm at the start of October. It was the most peculiar thing, plus no weatherman was able to explain why the people I was with and I were getting snow so early. Needless to say, the people I was with and I all switched on our heating equipment entirely early that year. I can’t even remember who won, because it didn’t even seem like a real competition. Every one of us all required the heat, plus the people I was with and I were rushing to get our Heating plus A/C equipment tuned up just like everyone else in the area. Currently, we’re all competing right now, plus the temperature is just starting to drop. I can’t wait to see who holds out on switching on their heating equipment last this year!
