I love traveling with my wife, Jan. I don't think there is really anything better than packing up and going on a road trip or flying to another country. There's something so special about experiencing new cultures, food and new geography.
But, I was recently speaking to a buddy of mine named Winston who lives in England. I was talking about scheduling a time to go visit him, and he let me know that now would not be a good time. Apparently, England has had unseasonably low temperatures and wet weather.
Winston also said that because of this, he and all his friends have been running to hardware stores to purchase electric heaters. he read that sales for this appliance were up almost 900 percent!
I was shocked. I couldn't believe what bad weather the country was having and that so many people were waiting until this chilly weather to buy such a useful appliance.
I've had my electric heater for years now. I can't tell you how many times it's helped keep my family and I warm. Few things are better than walking into my home after a cold day outside shoveling snow and curling up with a good book next to this appliance.
Winston was considering going out to buy an electric heater and I encouraged him to do so. He was originally skeptical, thinking that the minute he went out and bought one, the weather would turn nice.
I told Winston that even if that were be the case, there's certainly no reason why he can't use it next year if England experiences another cold and wet winter and spring.
