I know that is true in my head, but I'm 23 1/2 weeks pregnant and am thanking God for A/C! Especially to sleep :) We also spend a LOT of time at Lake Michigan or Platte Lake!

Tell us more....give suggestions....ideas.....more info about how to incorporate this idea and ways to add moving air, without it being so still in the rooms, that is what bothers me more than the heat.

Kim said...

So true; right now it is 90 degrees in our home and we have A/C and choose not to run it because of the extra cost.

We have blinds on our windows and have them pulled most of the day. We have fans running to move the air. We cool off in the pool but the temp in there is 90 also!

When we don't have the air on the children and I spend more time outside even in the previous 100 degree weather. I think our bodies are used to it. I remember years ago when I missed the whole summer because it was too hot! So sad.

It is possible! Thanks Ang.

That is a reassuring thought...but oh how AC can feel so nice in a break from the heat! We only have it in my bedroom... so when things feel unbearable, the children and I will head up there to read, nap or play a game to cool down for a bit!
I have thought of you on the hot days and wonder how you do it?

Amen! I think a good shade tree and darkened windows make a big difference.

I am the perfect panty~waste, I need my air to stay in a pleasent mood. I get surly when I can't cool off....sad to say, but it's the truth...debbie

we are in the midst of building our own home on 10 acres and we want to w/ ac- could you share tips besides the usual? we have many days of 115 degrees.

Acually, people do die from the heat. I hope everyone is taking extra precautions. The young and the old espc. The elderly are high risk in this heat wave.

We did without air in our 100 year old farm house until 4 years ago.
I was diagnosed with Lupus and have to stay out of the sun and the heat.
For many people (of all ages) with different types of chronic illness extreme heat or extreme cold can mean the difference between healthy, a trip to the ER, or worse!
In our county we have had 2 deaths that were heat related. Neither person was elderly. A few of our wonderful churches have set themselves up as "cooling stations" even offering rides for those who don't have a/c and perhaps cannot handle these 110 degree days. How nice of them :)
