All I want for Christmas is to be a certified HVAC mechanic

The NYTimes had a grim article on South Carolina in Monday’s paper. 14% unemployment expected in our state. Yikes. Laura has a job waiting for her when we get back, but I’ve been worried about what I’m going to do while I’m taking the HVAC classes at Horry Georgetown Tech College. I have very little expectation of generating any income with my writing until much later in life.

Some hopeful news to combat that chilling article in The Times: yesterday I found a job posting for an HVAC mechanic position in South Carolina that pays $52,000 a year. In Charleston County, where Laura and I hope to live, the salary schedule for a high school teacher with a master’s degree doesn’t reach $52k until the 18th year of teaching.
