I have worked outside in the southern heat for most of my life. I have been in the construction trade for all that time, and I found it to be quite lucrative when you’re willing to work hard and you know what you doing. I can’t help but look at the nine-to-five, white-collar, office types and laugh when they complain about a hard day’s work. I don’t mean to be arrogant, and a cushy office job has never appealed to me anyway, but they truly wouldn’t last an hour in my line of work. I really can’t imagine leading a sedentary lifestyle and I really appreciate the exercise that I get out there. That being said, the temperatures around here can be unbearably hot and muggy in the summertime. I don’t think anyone appreciates a good and powerful, properly working air conditioning system quite like I do. When you are deprived of something to the extreme, it is all the sweeter when you are finally reunited with it. I feel this way literally every time I manage to find an air-conditioned space during a work day out on the site. Whether it’s the company trucks that have really nice air conditioning or the places that we go for lunch, getting that first, fresh blast of cool air from a great HVAC unit feels absolutely amazing. As you would expect, my home has one of the best air conditioning units out there. I don’t know what I would do if I was not able to come home everyday after work to such blissful air-conditioned comfort. This southern, summer heat is no joke, I tell you!
