Trip home from Christmas was an adventure in staying warm

It’s funny that I was thinking to myself that last Christmas would be my last trip to my wife’s family home.

This is something that we’ve been doing for at least fifteen years.

And I was really starting to long for Christmas inside the quality heating and air of my own house. We don’t have kids so it’s not even a thought to her family that we’ll join them. And for a long time it was fun to see the kids do their thing. Even worth enduring the sauna like setting my in laws keep their home with that sort of thermostat setting. It’s unreal and I just have no idea how they can afford paying for that amount of HVAC heating. And it’s not like they are conservation oriented either. But, I kept my feelings to myself and figured that I’d just break the news that I wouldn’t be going north for Christmas anymore until the new year. Then we ran into a snowstorm on the way home. We got off the interstate because people were driving like idiots. Our tank was full and we had four wheel drive. So I felt good about the heating being on in the car long enough to get us somewhere safe. Still, it was an adventure just traveling the forty or fifty miles to the next town. And we stopped at an old motel with the big HVAC wall units you can see from the parking lot. It was the most thankful I’ve ever been for seeing that old school commercial HVAC. Yea, my wife is with me on Christmas at home from now on.
