I got a raise and promotion at work, but I had to move out of my hometown.
I was living in the Southeastern part of the country where the summer temperatures are hot and humid and the winter days are cool and mild. When I received the promotion, I had to move to the Denver location of our company. I knew the weather in Denver would be much different than the weather in my hometown. As soon as I moved to Denver, I started thinking about the right type of heating equipment to keep me warm during the winter months. I had a brand new furnace installed in the house that I purchased. I was very worried about the cold temperature. When December started, I was surprised by the mild temperatures. It was much colder than a regular winter day down south, but it was not as frigid and chilly as I anticipated. I was worried about hating the house and staying warm, but I actually didn’t need to worry that much about the Denver winter temperatures. There isn’t much snow unless you travel to the very high altitudes in the mountains. Those places often have snow fall several months out of the year. Fortunately, Denver has a much milder climate than some of the higher elevations. I’ve been living in the city for almost a year and I absolutely love it here. There are a lot of fun activities and places to visit. I’ve only seen a handful of attractions, and there are still so many more places on my list.
