Since Evansville, IL only has about fifty afternoons when there is inclement weather, I knew that moving there could mean I would not have snow for Christmasâ€¦ December’s average weekly high was only 48 degrees, but that was why I moved to IL, and i was sleepy of the northern freezing and dampness; There was traditional Heating and Air Conditioning in our home, because that forty 8 degrees was cold.
It was surprising how suddenly I got used to the lack of humidity and extremely freezing air. I liked being able to go out on a brisk day, and take a walk without freezing to death from the freezing damp air. I came lake home to feel the heat of our gas furnace, and I was cheerful. I could feel the daylight on our face nearly every day of the year. I had to admit that I missed the snow for Christmas, but I still needed our gas furnace, but last year, our spouse had a special Christmas present for me. The people I was with and I had lived in IL for almost several years when I told him how much I actually missed snow. I even hinted at going back up north so both of us could maybe have an old-fashioned Christmas, but both of us never made it. I woke up to see snowflakes outside our window; My spouse had hired someone with a snow maker to come to our home and make snow on our front lawn, but he opened the curtains and said Merry Christmas. It was the best Christmas present I ever had, and our neighbor’s children were on our lawn trying to build a snowman.
