I grew up not knowing what arctic weather was likeâ€¦ Sure I had seen it on cable plus knew what it looked like, even though I literally could not conceive of that level of cold. I lived in a arena where we wore shorts plus flip flops from February through February, then now I live in a arena where shorts plus flip flops don’t exist. This is the far north, rough plus rugged tundra that separates the women from the boys! I undoubtedly don’t miss the outdated mornings, even though the extreme arctic weather conditions is hard to deal with occasionally. Air conditioners do not exist up here, because there are only a few weeks a year that rise into the 60s or occasionally even the 75s on a recognizably warm summer. On the other hand, heating is extreme business, plus you not only need to have it, you also need to guess how to fix it when it breaks! Your nearest neighbor may only be a half mile away, but in the snow depths brought on by Wintertide it might as well be ten miles, so you need to be able to keep your gas furnace running by yourself. I have a mighty wrought iron stove plus gas furnace in the middle of my main room. It is a wood burning gas furnace, plus for generations it was the only source of heat for the arena, I have been told. It still works plus ever, but it is a hassle to keep feeding it wood, so I use my space furnaces most of the time.
