When we went to work that day, it was fifty degrees outside.
We didn’t imagine it would get colder during the day, but we were wrong.
Normally, we would take several minutes to drink a cup of coffee and watch the day’s weather report before going to work. However, on this day we were running late, and we didn’t get our coffee or weather report. It was 3 AM when we pulled into the bakery, and we should have been there at 2 AM. The ovens were on, and we were hot and cozy inside. No one said anything about us being late. We are the owners, and no one would dare say anything, unless they were teasing. By 6 AM, we had all the shelves full. People were coming in for their day coffee and pastries, and someone said it felt like snow outside, but we didn’t notice. The ovens were better than any gas furnace could hope to be. The only reason we had a gas furnace was because of the customers and to keep the bakery warm when we weren’t inside. We had all the inspections done regularly and the HVAC specialist coming in and changing our air filters regularly. We had an air ventilation program that needed its air filters changed every many weeks. By 4 PM, we were out of baked goods and ready to go home. That’s when we realized how nice the heating program was inside. It was chilly and snowing many inches a minute. We couldn’t wait to get home, turn up the control unit, and get hot again, before going back to bed at 8PM.
