I have lived in the south my entire life. I grew up here, went to school here, and have worked here in my chosen profession for the last decade and a half. Now after all of that, I am finally moving somewhere new. I found a job in my field up north that pays considerably more than I make now plus it has upper management opportunities. Unfortunately, I can’t perform my job duties from here otherwise I would just do it remotely. I have no idea what I’m in for on a grand scale, but I do know some of the things to expect. The people talk a bit differently so I will need to get used to that. Also, the weather is pretty much the opposite of down here, so that will be a thing. I hope it doesn’t get too cold too fast. I’ve seen those weather reports throughout the years about terrible snow storms with weather in the negative digits and it sounds absolutely awful. I am used to needing the air conditioner running for a couple months of the year then nothing else. The idea of having to live with a furnace keeping me warm for half the year doesn’t sound appealing in the least. Perhaps it will not be as bad as I think it will be though. Maybe this whole global warming thing will finally kick into gear and heat the planet up to a more desirable temperature. In any case, I am going to try and adapt to the cold so I won’t be so reliant on using a furnace to keep warm.
