Living in Orland Park, IL, our family makes the most of the moderate weather, our Spring plus fall seasons tend to be windy, wet plus frosty, however while the Summer can get sizzling plus muggy, it’s our option to get outside plus prefer the beauty of our local area, then just a few minutes drive from our house, on the banks of the Cal-Sag Channel is Lake Katherine Nature Center plus Botanic Park with a ten-acre lake, indoor nature center plus 85 acres to explore, but there are woodland plus wetlands, prairie, gardens plus a truly spectacular man-made waterfall.
The wildflowers are really gorgeous over the summer.
The heritage garden grows crops native to our regionâ€¦ All of us try to hike, bike, kayak, swim, play tennis plus appreciate every possible outdoor activity, because the sunny conditions don’t last longâ€¦ By early September, the temperature has cooled down considerably. All of us get lots of rain that legitimately abruptly turns to snow. All of us can expect well over several feet of snow plus below-freezing conditions until the end of May. We’ve already had snow on the ground for both Easter plus Mother’s Day. The gas furnace is an essential piece of equipment. All of us spent a small fortune on an Energy Star, high-efficiency heating system featuring stretchy speed technology. All of us spent extra for the cost-saving luxury of zone control, and since we’re so often trapped inside the house, all of us want to be perfectly warm, and it’s also pressing to keep our energy bills as low as possible. I am legitimately conscientious about replacing air filters, scheduling professional service plus running the humidifier. I take extra precautions to create a healthy plus comfortable living environment for our family.
