It was 38 degrees Celsius here on Wednesday. It was about 32 today, and about the same on Monday and Tuesday. I like warm weather, but “warm” to me is 25 degrees.
We’d probably have central air conditioning in our house if this kind of weather was common. Instead, we make do. Our house has “top opening” windows, so in-window air conditioning isn’t an option for us either. I bought a portable AC unit a couple of years ago, the type with the big hoses you are supposed to route through the window…but guess what? There isn’t any real way to mount the hoses / vents in top opening windows either. I can jury rig something with tin foil and cardboard (I’m serious), but it is generally more hassle than it’s worth.
What this all means is we have a bunch of fans running, and don’t sleep terribly well. The cats sprawl out as flat as possible in the lowest part of the house most of the time. Amazingly, though, they actually come up and sleep with us: I suppose being near their pet humans is more important than finding a spot that is a few degrees cooler.
What do you want to bet that, a few weeks from now, I’ll be complaining about the rain?
