Freeze my butt off for a price
And it was COLD.
Do you ever wake up, as if from a dream when the seasons change? I feel like climate change is one of the only ways that I remember I still exist, at all. If the outdoor air conditions never changed, I would probably forget that I was a living organism traveling through time and space, to be honest with you. In the past week I realized that I had zoned out for the entire winter season. This is usually when I decide that something needs to change in my life. So, I planned a weekend getaway for myself and expected to unwind in the increasing outdoor air temperatures. Instead, I found myself more disappointed than ever when I arrived at my destination. I basically had the most uncomfortable experience of my life thanks to the modern heating, cooling, and ventilation system in my hotel room. Or, well, the lack of modern heating, cooling, and air quality control system in my room. When I made that reservation I assumed that there was a mini split ductless heating and cooling system situated in the hotel room. Usually these indoor air handling devices are clean, quiet, easy to use, and keep everything extremely comfortable. However, when I entered the suite, the room was free of any HVAC devices in immediate view. And it was COLD. The increasing air temperature outside didn’t make for comfortable air inside without a heating system. The person at the front desk honestly did not care about my HVAC issue. As I shivered, they told me that the hotel listing never detailed any heating, cooling, and air quality control in the suite – I got my room, and no one ever mentioned heat.
