It's 85F, and 65% humidity.

In the house.

Maybe we should have put the AC units in after all... Nawwwwww... ;)

On (mostly, it was only (Ha! "only"!) in the mid-to-high 80s outside) a whim, I went down to Home Despot two weeks ago Monday and picked up a portable AC unit. Hooked it up that evening, and it was a nice-to-have the rest of the week, allowed us to keep the bedroom cool enough that we could get to sleep an hour or so earlier than we'd've been able to otherwise, and we didn't even need to run it overnight.

*Last* Monday, when the weather reports were talking about extended periods in the high 90's, some of the folks here at work went down and couldn't get any A/C. I felt very smug. Not that I need much justification for that.

We ran the thing pretty much 24 hours all last week. It was awesome--even when the temps broke 100, I was still able to get to sleep at night.

Heh. Yeah, beating the rush always works better. :) We *have* two AC units, we just got into this mindset of wanting to see how long we could go without installing them, since we've had such a cool summer.

And now we're being stubborn. By end of August, it won't be an issue, so we're kind of like "well, it's *only* three more weeks or so..." Luckily, the weather looks like it's cresting about now for heat and humidity. We'll keep our fingers crossed. :)

Wow, my time in NC really changed my perspective on 'hot'.

Yeah, we spent three full weeks in Hawai'i a couple years back, and by the time the third week rolled around, we didn't think twice about going out in the 95-degree heat. Acclimation is a nifty thing.

Of course, we acclimated back to 65-and-cloudy in about three seconds on our return to SEA. :)

LOL Yeah, when I was up there for the reunion, I drove into Wenatchee and it was 104F. About 10 minutes later, it seemed fine. Still prefer dry to humid heat, but at least I can not melt like a popsicle when it gets into the 95F/95% range. I'll whine about it some, but it's livable.
