No Air Conditioning Weekend

July 18, 2009

The weather has been so nice this weekend that we’ve just shut off our air conditioning and opened up all the windows.  I can’t believe it’s the middle of July and the weather’s this nice.  Just a few weeks ago it was so brutally hot that our neighbors on both sides had their air conditioning units working so hard they went kaput.

One neighbor was only without air for a day, the other family didn’t have air for almost a week!  As soon as I heard their story I made an appointment to have some maintenance done on our air conditioner.  He cleaned out all the cottonwood that was stuck in the unit, apparently that causes them to overheat since they can’t suck in enough air to cool off.  Luckily for us, our air has been up and running and we haven’t even needed to use it this weekend.

Needless to say we spent all day outside enjoying the gorgeous weather but here are a few articles I ran across last night:

    I’m envious. Down here in FL, it’s felt like 105+ for the last few weeks. It’s probably one of the few places in the states where the summer is the season we DON’T look forward to.

    Then again, I guess I could be living in Arizona…
