It is 100 degrees on my back porch (in the shade) right this second.
And I am sitting my my 77* house feeling very very happy about having air conditioning for the very first time. I am trying to be reasonable about how I use my new air conditioning. We have only had it on once before this week, but all week long I have had it set at 77* while the outside temp has risen from 90* to 95 and now to hit 100.
I know people who set their air conditioning down as low as 64*. That makes me twitch a bit. It is summer. It is supposed to be warm. Warm enough for heat stroke? No thank you. But warm enough for tank tops and no-cook dinners. ;) It should be... right?
I feel for all those other Seattlites that are sitting in this heat right now... baking inside their houses that don't come with this wonderful tool that I have now grown to love. I never ever thought I would need air conditioning. Even when we bought this house, I thought central air was a frivolous thing to put in a house in WA and had no idea why Don was so excited about it. And we just moved in June. But now... well I have eaten crow to my dh a couple times now about how nice it has been to have this machine. As Don wanders around saying "I love my house." lol...
