I have been trying to go see my grandpa at least twice a week ever since all of the virus shutdowns started way back in the spring last year.
I always like going to see him, but this year it has been a real struggle.
I have been trying to stay outside the whole time that I’m there to visit just so that my grandpa won’t be exposed to anything that I might bring over. That’s why I’ve been staying outside on the front porch instead of going inside his house to visit. This would have been fine except for the fact that the weather has been cooling off a lot lately and now the temperatures are almost too cold for me to deal with. It’s hard for me to stay out there on the porch when I know that the furnace is running and it’s nice and toasty inside his house. The reason that I know that it’s nice and cozy inside his house is because the outside furnace unit is placed in the unfortunate spot right next to the porch where I sit to visit with my Grandpa. The furnace seems to kick on and run almost incessantly whenever I’m sitting there trying to have a conversation with him. The problem is that the exterior furnace unit for his electric furnace is super loud and I can barely hear him through the glass door on the porch. Not only is it annoying, but it also reminds me that the temperature is actually way too cold for me to be sitting out there on the porch!
