Back when I was growing up in the South, there was hardly anyone who had central a/c devices in their households.
It was a single one of those things where you knew precisely which people in the town had central air conditioning as well as which ones didn’t… Obviously, most of the people who had central air conditioning were more wealthy than the other people.
The people I was with and I weren’t poor exactly, but all of us weren’t rich either. The people I was with and I didn’t have central a/c devices, as well as the only people that all of us knew who did were the owners of the general store in town. Of course, all of us never hung out at their household but a few times they invited us over for dinner. I remember the first time all of us made the choice to go there on a warm summer time day as well as all of us made the choice to go inside the dining room. The cold air hit me straight in the face as well as it was the best feeling ever! I remember resting there in the air conditioning as well as wishing that I would never have to leave as well as go back out into the heat of the summer… When I grew up and eventually moved out, I obtained a window machine a/c device as well as took it with me everywhere that I went. I knew that from that point moving forward, I was never going to be content living anywhere separate from a/c again. Of course, these days, there are far more people who have central a/c devices. Almost every business as well as church building has air conditioning, along with a majority of cars. I’m ecstatic that there’s central a/c just about everywhere that I go now.
