Windy and Cold

December 7th, 2008 at 03:34 pm

It's turning out to be quite windy and cold tonight. I wish I didn't have to go out for the night, but I do need to take my dog walking for his nightly duties. Every time it's very cold outside, the heat in my apartment doesn't seem to work. I personally think they scrimp on the heating and turn the heat off late at night. Sometimes I feel that this building must have so many violations. Isn't it required for apartment buildings to have full time supers? Or is that not the case? Every time I ask my super to fix something, he says "I am only the part time super". And then he gets mad that I am not home during the work day! Hello, I work, I go to school, and can't sit around waiting for him to show up. Especially since there have been times when I have actually waited for him to show up when he said he would, and have him not show up! I don't know. It's so frustrating. The only reason I am in this apartment is because the rent is not horribly overpriced (although it is still a lot)as it would be if I were to move some place else right now. Plus everywhere I go, I am sure I will face the same bs. I wish I had the down payment amount ready already to buy a house. And I wish the economy was better, and that the job market was better. And that I was already done with my graduate studies. And that I had enough self confidence in myself. Okay, now I am depressed.

    I would absolutely look into your city's ordinances in regards to rental units. If they are turning off the heat in the night, that can't be legal. Good luck!

    It is cold and windy where I live too. About 15 degrees right now and half that with the wind chill.

    I'm not a big fan of cold and wind either, but I do find that if I dress warm enough I can enjoy the time out with the dog. I live in the boonies and it's peaceful and pretty out at night.

    A little snow here in New York. Nothing major. But it is getting much colder.
