Ground Hog Day — Revisited


According to the official Ground Hog: Punxsutawney Phil – he predicted an early spring .  Well as you and I know — HE WAS WRONG! There is also the old adage –March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb — that also was wrong this year.  I guess the only reliable weather predictor is the old weather stone.  You put a rock outside — if it’s wet, it’s raining; if it’s white, it’s snowing; if it’s casting a shadow, it’s sunny; and if it’s dry, it’s nice.

It’s funny how we, in the HVAC business look at weather.  We live and die by it.  We always ask for cold winters and hot summers so we can keep busy, but there comes a time when we all have had enough of one season and really look for the next one to come.  Who would have thought St Louis would get 15″ of snow on March 25 and at the same time, areas north of there didn’t get any.  Maybe there is something to Global Climate Change after all.

Both meteorological and calendar spring are supposed to be here.  I for one, wish they really were.  I like the change of seasons.  I’m looking forward to warmer weather.  I’m looking forward to all the calls I’ll be getting on air conditioners.

Regardless of what’s happening outside, I’m going to start talking about air conditioning in my blogs again.  Spring and summer have to get here one of these days and, I think, we are all looking forward to that.

So stay tuned — maybe if I start talking about air conditioning, we may actually get the weather for it.  Regardless, I can’t be any worse at predicting the weather than a ground hog or a lion  :>) now can I?

About yorkcentraltechtalk

I have been in the HVAC industry most of my life. I worked 25 years for contractors on anything from residential to large commercial boilers and power burners. For the past 23+ years I had been employed by York International UPG Division ( a division of Johnson Controls) as a Technical support/Service Manager but I am now retired. One of my goals has always been to "educate" dealers and contractors. The reason for starting this blog was to share some knowledge, thoughts, ideas, etc with anyone who takes the time to read it. The contents of this blog are my own opinions, thoughts, experiences and should not be construed as those of Johnson Controls York UPG in any way. I hope you find this a help. I always welcome comments and suggestions for postings and will do my best to address any thoughts, questions, or topics you may want to hear about. Thanks for taking the time to read my postings!
