I prefer the Elgin cold

I have moved around a lot and have finally settled in Elgin, Illinois of all places.

My family is downright astonished since they live down south.

They deal with warm temperatures for most of the year. The sun comes early and doesn’t let up. They get summer-like conditions in the middle of the winter. Basically For about two months it gets a little chilly. Not like Elgin though. Their cold days might get into the 30s. I can get into the teens without breaking a sweat. My summer season isn’t all that impressive either. A few days in the 80s is about it. My family worries about AC and keeping cool most of the year. I haven’t bothered with an air conditioner. I am all about heating. I make sure that my gas furnace and fireplace are ready for the long season. While my family thinks this seems horrible, I feel I am living a better life. I love being cold over too hot. I like that I can sled, snow mobile, and snowboard. I like going ice skating and watching hockey teams in their rink. The cold also is more holiday themed. The summer season is just long and warm enough for me. It is hot enough that I open up my house and let the fresh breeze roll in. I air everything out, introducing some sweet smelling, fresh air. Then I am good to go for another year. Elgin is such a safe, small town feel as well. I wouldn’t give it up for all the money in the world.
