My boyfriend’s best friend from high school got married this weekend. The ceremony itself was held at the university chapel, because the happy couple met in college and stayed in the area after graduation. The vows were lovely, and everyone looked extremely happy. I thought that it was strange, however, that the couple was standing up at the altar rather anxiously. They were shimmering, but I thought that they probably were really excited and couldn’t wait to get out of the chapel and onto the honeymoon, as they were headed for a tropical island shortly. Later, we found out that they had been sweating! The zone control heating and cooling of the chapel had been on the fritz, and apparently there had not been time for a heating and cooling professional to come by and fix the HVAC problem before the start of the wedding. The zone where the altar stood was heated and cooled with a separate thermostat than the rest of the pews, where we had been seated. The happy couple had been suffering from a furnace malfunction while the rest of us stayed cool and comfortable in the mild air conditioning. Honestly, I think that modern heating and cooling technology is wonderful, but that HVAC malfunction could not have happened at a worse time. No wonder I’d thought the newlyweds were excited to get away on their honeymoon! They had been wishing to get away from the malfunctioning heating system! Thankfully the reception was held at a local ballroom where the heating and cooling system was top of the line.
