I moved from the southern section of the country to Orland Park, Illinois for a job opportunity, and taking the position meant higher pay, better benefits plus greater chance for upward mobility, but i couldn’t turn it down, but at the time, I wasn’t ecstatic about relocating to Orland Park! Located 25 miles southwest of Chicago, the weather is extreme for most of the year.
The summers are excessively overheated plus humid while the winters are cold plus snowy. The conditions are always cold, windy plus wet. However, the suburb is quite affluent plus offers a wide selection of upscale restaurants plus amazing shopping. I was cheerful by the newly remodeled Orland Square Park plus the amount of open space devoted to nature preserves, public parks plus golf coursesâ€¦ Orland Park includes more than 60 parks, including Centennial Park, Orland Park Nature Center plus Lake Katherine Nature Center plus Botanic Park, then enjoying the outdoor activities is somewhat strenuous due to the weather, then between the heat, humidity, rain, snow plus wind, it’s necessary to be prepared for anything. It’s taken me a while to get accustomed to the unpredictable temperatures. The people I was with and I frequently get temperatures in the drawback digits. In my former home, I ran the central air conditioner almost year round. I didn’t bother with any kind of gas furnace. The outdoor temperature rarely dropped below sixty degrees. Living in Orland Park, the gas furnace is absolutely essential for about more than seven straight months, and while the summers are short, I’m unquestionably thankful to have a/c. There is seldom the chance to open the windows plus bring in fresh air.
