Maryland’s weather is notorious for being unpredictable and for changing dramatically in short periods of time.
So much so that there is a saying: “If you don’t like the weather in Maryland, just wait 5 minutes!”
It’s obviously not THAT dramatic — But I’ve lived here my whole life and can attest to us having some weird weather.
For instance – the winter of 2009-2010 gave us one of the biggest blizzards MD has ever seen – Some parts got over 2 feet of snow in less than 12 hours…
And now, here we are 6 months later in July – melting away in 102 degree weather – with a heat index of 115.
If you don’t have AC, I feel very bad for you.. but if you don’t like the weather.. well, I’m not sure waiting 5 minutes is going to help you in this situation 🙂
It’s funny because Maryland residence have to have really good AC units/Heat pumps… they have to own a snow blower… and a power generator for when the hurricane-ish storms come in off the east coast and blow the trees onto our power lines.
Oh Maryland, how I love thee so.
PS – my house’s AC broke today… I’m melting.
Update: Thank goodness for Atlantic Mechanical who came out and fixed our air conditioning with less than a days notice.
I called them on a Tuesday, they came out and fixed it the next day… only cost $120 and we had nice cool air flowing through the house again.
Hey Maryland, figure it out already!
