I don’t know what’s up over there

I will be sad when it finally dies too

I really like how nature takes back what is hers little by little. For example, there are a lot of abandoned buildings in our town. You can find a once-beautiful lake house or aged shop all boarded up just about every mile or so. Some people around here certainly find them to be creepy. I prefer them. Nature slowly starts to recover these aged houses until suddenly there is nothing left of them anymore. Some of the 1s in our area are nothing but a huge, collapsed roof on top of rubble, however clothes have nothing left but a set of stone stairs leading literally to nowhere. However, there is this 1 abandoned lake house that I do find a little bit creepy. That is – I think – because the air conditioner is still running. The lake house has been abandoned for at least 12 years now but every time I walk by it I can hear the air conditioning blasting away. At first when I saw the building I thought that maybe somebody still lived there but I know for sure that they don’t. I have walked onto the porch. I could recognize the cool air from the air conditioning coming out of the only open window and I can tell no 1 lives there anymore. I recognize someone must be still paying the monthly electric bill though. Otherwise, why would the air conditioning system still be running like that. It must be a strong air conditioner to work so long in there without proper maintenance. I will be sad when it finally dies too. But, as I said, eventually nature will win in the end.
