When you go to the beach you expect the winter to be warm or even hot. What you don’t expect is to wake up in the middle of the night with ice on your nose. I was appreciating a gentle fall and trusting that winter wouldn’t be too brutal when I took off for my favorite beach. I checked in with the sun shining and fell asleep quickly because I was so tired. I woke up freezing cold. I peered out my window and couldn’t accept what I was seeing. There was snow everywhere, even on the sand. I immediately ran down to the beach to see if it was real. The water was like ice.
I ran back to my room and turned on the heater. It didn’t come on right away. I heard the HVAC unit kick on and figure it would be quite a while before I really felt the warmth. Incredibly within an hour, my hotel was heating up. I fell asleep, but a few hours later work up cold again.
The unit had shut off and this time it would not come on. I called down to the front desk and they said that other rooms had similar problems. However, they had an emergency HVAC service program. The technician came to my room quickly, repaired the heating system and was on his way. I fell back asleep and slept cozy. The next day I ran down to the beach to play in the snow. How many people get to say they have done that?
