I apparently began resetting my thermostat controls that evening
Just a word of advice from me to you, if you tend to get sad in the winter season… Do not turn to alcohol to pass the time. I honestly can’t tell you how many days I spent drunk in my younger years, just trying to kill time until spring finally arrived. When you live in a climate like mine, the winter season is extremely depressing. It’s cold all the time, you barely see the sun lights, and there is a blustering wind that will cut through all of your clothing. This is why you find yourself stuck indoors, relying entirely on your central heating system to stay alive. Half of the time of the heating system is not even warm enough to offset the ice cold conditions outdoors. This is why people wind up installing gas powered fireplaces and portable heating devices throughout their homes. You literally cannot rely on a modern forced air furnace or boiler system to keep you alive when the outdoor air temperature can easily be -20 degrees. As you can imagine, it’s easy to start imbibing under these conditions. I’m here to tell you, drinking too much can lead to indoor air temperature disaster if you aren’t careful. I found this out the hard way when I apparently and dolls in too much eggnog and decided my indoor air temperature control system was not doing a good job of managing my indoor air quality. I apparently began resetting my thermostat controls that evening. The next morning when I woke up drenched in sweat and strangely cold at the same time, I realized that my heating system was working at full blast… Meanwhile I had gotten too hot and also opened a window. It took me hours to fix my thermostat programming and shovel the snow out of my room.
