Our air cooling is not working out. 86 F in the main room this evening. My bedroom a few degrees cooler.
We replaced some very old windows this late Spring and about two years back, a new roof with lighter coloured tiles and some whirlybirds and a ridge vent to help cool us. In the past month we have bought a couple of new fans and two new portable ac units. I am not cool enough but my real worry is the dog and the cats.. Tonight I took the dog for a spin in the Toyota with the ac running hard which helped cool her off. We checked Cesar’s dog cooling advice and we are trying one or two ideas we had not thought of before. It is much hotter than last summer. l am not sure what we will do next. A lot of summer to go. Tomorrow I may go hide in the Midland Public Library, it is a non -dialysis day. Today I finished mid afternoon, a scheduling oddity, and the nurses said it would be perfectly fine if I deided to linger and take advantage of their airconditioning. But I pressed on and went for an iced coffee at McCafe in Midland, a nice cool restaurant.
