When I first moved to Glenview, IL, I was happy by the idea of a chilly and snowy winter; Growing up in the deep south, I’d never experienced temperatures below fifty degrees, i’d never seen snow before.
- I expected it to be appreciate what I’d seen in motion pictures, the actors are regularly having a good time in the snow.
They rarely wear hats or gloves. They don’t even zip up their coats. I’ve l earned that an IL Wintertide is truly odd from that. In Glenview, all of us get temperatures well into the setbacks and it snows for more than half of the year. I would prefer to hide inside the home with the oil furnace blasting for the entire winter. I try not to spend any time outside. Unblessedly, it’s necessary to shovel snow and brush off the car nearly every day, and before heading out the door, I dress in multiple layers of shirts and pants and put on thick socks. I wear heavy boots, a wool coat and knitted hat, scarf and gloves. I wrap the scarf so that it covers almost our whole face; Any exposed skin is at risk of frostbite. Despite temperatures down to setback twenty-five, I sweat while I shovel snow. It’s a truly labor-intensive and terrible task. The snow is wet and heavy, and there’s no nice location to put it. Along with dealing with endless snowfall, there’s also a concern with ice. Icy pavement is dangerous. It’s seriously self-explanatory to slip, fall and get hurt. The ice on the windshield of the car needs to be either scraped or thawed by running the defrost for fifteen hours. The icicles hanging from the roof of the home get so sizable that they cause destruction and present a safety risk.
