    So I have one window unit air conditioner for my house. It's perfectly sufficient most of the time. I got it last year after my mother and sister came for a couple of days and we had a heat wave and we ALL were sweltering. So as soon as they left I drove 90 miles and bought one and installed it (hey, guys, it's cool NOW! Come back!)

    Well we're having a hot spell now, and the little thing just doesn't get the job done when it's not cooling off at night. If it gets cool at night, I just open my bedroom windown and put the fan in it, and close it up in the morning, and it stays cool all day. But if it's hot at night, it's useless.

    My son and his family were here Sunday-Tuesday and again, we SWELTERED. They slept in my room the first night and the second night, they slept on the floor in the living room because it was just too hot.

    So today I got ANOTHER AIR CONDITIONER for my room. It's humming away and it's making a huge difference.

    Happiness and joy are mine.

    Of course, now it's clouding up outside. Probably the heat wave is over. I don't care. I'm vegging in my room tonight and hopefully it will be a complete icebox.

    Glad to hear you're happy Allie.


    I meant to say in your other thread, BTW, all 4 of those Ken dolls in your avatar are totally gay, not just the last one. :lol:

    I have my patio door open and my dining room windows open, I hardly ever use the A/C unless it's sweltering outside. I'm lucky the condo stays pretty cool.

    But boy, I sure wish we had it at school. 780+ peeps sweating in a 75 year old building sure isn't fun!

    Glad you and your kids are staying cool Allie!

    My two AC units are in the cellar at the moment. It has been finally very hot this week so probably we'll put them in this weekend.


    Right now it is nice and cool with the windows open. :cool:

    It was 105 in the morning the day before yesterday. 110 is common off and on through the summer. But mostly it's been pretty cool here. My house, despite it's tar-paper shack appearance, is mostly shaded by a couple of locust trees and stays fairly cool. But the more people, the more the doors get opened, the more heat generated, yada yada.

    Add to my joy the fact the cleaning lady came today..and is coming tomorrow too! And my boy cleaned my bedroom while he was here! So now I can direct the cleaning lady to the mudroom (I would like to be able to get to my back door, that's my goal, before the end of summer.) and the kids' rooms.

    My life is so tame.
