Hot Hot Hot

Today we are entering our 5th day of Heat Advisories -- temps (with the humidity) up around 40C.  

Now I love the heat -- and personally don't much like air conditioning...... fans have always been enough for me.  In the past when I did have A/C I used it only about 3 days a year or so.  So when I moved in here I bought one small fan for the bedroom... there was a ceiling fan in the dining room/living room.

Yesterday I called "red" on the heat.  Problem is Mother Nature doesn't believe in safe words.  So I decided to go out and buy a couple of heavy duty fans .......  ugh!!  so many choices........... I did finally settle on 2 but not before I bought a Dyson fan -- those over priced space age looking fans....... 

I brought the Dyson home and was bragging to Hands about how much cooler things were gonna be -- hoping He would be more comfortable when he comes to visit...... BUT -- to put it mildly I was NOT impressed with the Dyson -- it seemed to me my lil fan did as good a job as the Dyson -- if not better.

So I took the Dyson back -- and instead bought 2 heavy duty normal looking fans for half the price.  I set 'em up and had them going top speed all afternoon -- and the apartment seemed to cool down -- unless it was just a psychological thing - you know - 3 fans working instead of 1 means the apartment should be cooler.

Today Hands and his wife are coming for dinner -- I will be cooking in this heat -- but with all 3 fans going full blast............ it's a test -- we'll see how cool Hands thinks it is this evening ......... (got my fingers crossed!!)

Ugh, I know how you feel. This heat needs to go. I'm usually okay, since I work outside and I'm used to it, but when it's 100 Fahrenheit... nope.

We got a window fan and it does WONDERS. We want to get more. We do have one airconditioner in the bedroom. We try not to run it, but it's on right now!

I would buy a portable air conditioner instead of buying Dyson fan or 2 more fans.
