The reason I remember that is due to the fact that I would go outside and just play in the snow, plus when I came back inside, our Dad would tell me to put our mittens on the radiator to dry.
I currently am living in the southeast! It is insane tepid plus humid here, plus the two of us use the air conditioning about ten months out of the year, I would guess… BUt when I was a kid, a truly young kid, I lived in the northeast. I am pretty sure there was no such thing as air conditioning in that part of the woods, then all of us lived in a fairly affluent area, plus I don’t remember anyone ever talking about air conditioning in the summer. As you might expect, back in those afternoons, teenagers didn’t spend money attention to heating plus cooling. I’m positive our school didn’t have a/c either; Try to have a school with air conditioning nowadays, plus you will have a thoUSAnd whining teenagers on your hands. But the two of us thought nothing of it. With that being said, there is a single thing I remember about heating the home back in those afternoons. All of us had a furnace with radiators. The reason I remember that is due to the fact that I would go outside and just play in the snow, plus when I came back inside, our Dad would tell me to put our mittens on the radiator to dry. Then, when it was time to go outside again, I would grab up those nice warm, dry mittens plus back out to building snowmen plus sledding down the hill, however my Dad later had moved us teenagers down to the southeastern area of the country, so no more snow plus no more mittens plus no more gigantic heating bill for our mom. All of us traded in the heating for air conditioning, although I paid no attention to a/c. My Dad offered me a truly ecstatic childhood, despite the fact that our dad had died when I was just a toddler.
