Last month, I hopped on a plane and I headed south for a vacation. It was below freezing when I left my home, and the snow was coming down at an inch an hour. I had to brush off my car and move the snow from the driveway. After that I turned on the heaters and defrosting so I could get the ice off my windshield. Twenty minutes later, I was braving the snow covered, ice slicked highway on the way to the airport. I had to drag my luggage through the driving snow, and by the time my luggage was checked, I was wet and my feet were frozen. I removed all of my layered clothing and put them with my checked luggage. I didn’t think I would need my winter clothing since I was going south. The airport was so hot that I was sweating within a couple of minutes. Their thermostat had to be set at eighty, and the furnace was running the entire time. I wasn’t hot for long, for when I boarded the plane, the HVAC was so low that I instantly began to shiver. Even though I adjusted the air vents, I continued to shiver. I endured another overly heated airport during my layover, and once again experienced a bout of shivering when I got on the plane. The air quality was nasty, and half of the people on board were sneezing and coughing. Someone really needs to redesign their HVAC system. I finally got off the plane and I left the airport behind me. My head was pounding like a bass drum by the time I got settled, and I had the HVAC thermostat set to where I could be comfortable.
