My cousin has the coldest basement that I have ever been in! I had to stay down there last week whenever we went back to our hometown to visit and I thought that I was literally going to freeze to death.
They had the air conditioning going on full blast whenever we arrived because the weather had been so hot outside.
I think that the day that we got there, the outside temperature was somewhere in the high nineties. I guess that since they live down south, they are really used to using the air conditioning all the time. My wife and I are not used to that, though. Whenever we got married, we moved up north and so the climate is much cooler where we are from. Now whenever we go back to my hometown to visit, I am always shocked by the way that everyone uses the central air conditioning all the time. We just don’t use the A/C at our house very much at all. We really don’t need it for the most part because the summer temperatures don’t get all that hot. My cousin, on the other hand, uses the air conditioning like it’s going out of style. The air conditioning at their house is so cold that I could have sworn that I could see my breath at one point whenever we were trying to go to sleep down in their basement. I think that the basement was the coldest part of the house and we were stuck down there on a futon because they don’t have a guest room upstairs.
