I absolutely love May weather, especially after many weeks of dreaded snow plus ice. Although we could get another cold front before we reach the summer time season, right now it’s gorgeous outdoors. The hot plus cold temperatures are in the low 70s plus the sun is consistently shining. We’re seeing lush green growth where there used to be nothing however bare trees plus dead plants. As we get new vegetation, our wildlife is returning in droves. It’s nice to see bustling life in my backyard once again. I can fill my bird feeders plus watch my winged friends return from their trips down south for the winter. I also see rabbits emerging from their partial Winter hibernation. But a single of the things I love the most about this time of the year is the energy savings. When it’s in the 70s outside in the day, I’m not running the air conditioning or the oil furnace. I suppose I have to use the air conditioning in the summer time season as much as the next person, however it’s the Winter heating that really kills me. My electricity bill was so high every year that I decided to switch to gas heating. Even with a gas oil furnace, I’m still paying more in energy costs than I have in any other location that I have lived in this country. I would move to a peculiar state, however my job is tied to this location. Sooner or later I just have to deal with the weather here or I’m never going to be glad. At some point I will switch to hydronic heating, plus hopefully I can get radiant heated flooring as well.
