A soggy cold day at camp

When I was a teenager I was fortunate enough to get a job working at a summer camp.

This Camp was located in the Low Country down south and although most days were hot and muggy we had a freak weather pattern come through and it wound up to be very cold and rainy for days on end.

All we could think of was figuring out how to keep over a hundred campers from complaining about being cold. Believe it or not it was easier at night because they were snuggled into their bunks with their sleeping bags and they were at least somewhat warm, but during the day it was a different story. Everywhere you went was wet and miserable. There was a large dining hall that had a big stone fireplace and the staff tried to keep a fire going there all the time so that people could take a break from the cold but we couldn’t all just sit in there all day long. The main house of the old plantation that was used for camp had a furnace in it but unfortunately it wasn’t working and we had to contact an HVAC company to come out and look at it. Because of its age there was no way to get parts so we hoped that they could find some way to make it work. The technician that came out said that he knew of an older gentleman in the area that knew a lot about the older systems. He came and was able to come up with a way to make it work temporarily but suggested that we look into purchasing a newer furnace. For the most part the camp was only used during the warmer months so it was decided that they would just make do for that time.
