When I take a shower at my appartment, stepping out leaves me cold to
the point of almost shivering. This is not the case, however, at some
of the locations I've previously showered. It's been suggested that
the reason for this is that the locations that I have showered at
didn't have cement directly underneath them and that since those were I
have felt cold, afterwards, do, that that's the reason.
The places where I haven't felt cold have usually been on the second
floor or higher, whereas the places where I've taken showers on the
first floor (presumably where the concrete would be) have left me cold.
The one exception to this is an old house that was built in the
1920's, where first floor showers don't leave me cold.
Anyway, my question is... is the concrete indeed the reason? If not,
what else might it be?
Also, say I were looking for a new appartment and was only able to
chose from locations on the first floor of the complex. Are there any
characteristics that I could ask about that'd mitigate the effect of
the concrete (or whatever the cause is)?
