There are still areas where you can find the deadly cold, but I think you would need to have born in this area to notice it
After living up north for most of our lives, moving to Albuquerque, NM, was different, to say the least. From early October until mid-April, we had to have heating if we wanted to survive. Without a furnace to keep us warm, we knew we were looking at a disastrous situation. Night temperature would still dip into the twenties and without a working furnace, water could freeze quickly. When we moved to Albuquerque, the temperatures were much milder. I loved knowing I could go outside during the day, and I could still breathe. Unlike back home, where my lungs would fill with the frigid air, and I would end up house bound for the next three months, in Albuquerque, my breathing was easy and comfortable. We still needed heating and air conditioning, but it wasn’t as bad as it was up north. Up north, I was housebound during the heat of summer. The humidity was so bad most days, that combined with the heat, took your breath away the second you closed the door behind you. The HVAC technicians aren’t as harried here in Albuquerque. There is no need to rush if a furnace is broken, because the climate is so different. There are still areas where you can find the deadly cold, but I think you would need to have born in this area to notice it. My husband said that we could easily survive if our furnace broke and the HVAC company couldn’t get to us within a few hours. I wouldn’t want to go without a furnace for hours on end, but it wouldn’t be dangerous.
