My girlfriend and I have been long distance for a few months now. We met at a conference in the south during the summer, and from that moment we have been as close as peanut butter and jelly. The only problem is that she is from the midwest and I am from the deep south. The other week, I thought it was time to finally fly to the midwest to see her and meet her family. I had never been to the midwest before, and I was shocked when I landed. The second that I stepped out of the airport, I was hit with so much cold air I thought I was in a freezer. Luckily for me her parents had plenty heat blasting in the car on the drive back to their home. I told them about how cold it was and they laughed and told me not to worry. They said they had radiant heated floors installed in their house. Being from the south, I had never once heard of radiant heated floors before. Apparently they are an super energy efficient and eco friendly way to be able to keep your house nice and toasty. Let me tell you, it was simply amazing! We would all sit on the ground together playing board games, just soaking up the warmth coming from the ground. It was so nice to get to know my girlfriend and her family better, and not have to worry about freezing my but off in the process. If I ever end up moving down here with my girlfriend, the first thing we do will be installing radiant heated floors!
