But, it was surprisingly still hot and humid.
I’m used to milder weather where I’m from. We do get rain, but not too heavy that it can carry away houses. When I went to visit my friend last year, it was a whole other experience. Mark and I have been close friends since college. We were roommates who became tight despite growing up in different cultures. It was such a great time for us to bond because life is changing and people are becoming more accepting of one another. My friend and his family asked me to go visit them and spend the summer. Since I was between jobs, this was the best time for such an adventure. His home is out in the country and they have many animals. Mark told me about the AC unit in their home and why it’s so powerful. It turns out, this is among the hottest places in the state. When there are heat waves, you don’t want to be anywhere there isn’t an AC unit. Even the animals in their farm have barns that have cooling systems. I never knew it would get so extreme until a heat wave hit when I was visiting Mark’s home. He was right about needing a powerful AC to keep a home cool under such extreme weather. Afterwards, we had the worst storm I have ever experienced. But, it was surprisingly still hot and humid. Mark explained many people don’t like such weather, but he’s gotten used to it. All it takes is having the right AC unit and you’re good to go. I, on the other hand, had never been anywhere like that in all my life.
