It's too damned hot! Last summer I asked if we could get some ductless units into certain rooms to keep them cool, but Dan wanted to "do more research" and here we are again. I've got my old portable sitting in front of me all day and all night. I can't really walk much away from it or I start to melt, but it's making it manageable to have it blowing on me.. On Friday, we tried the foil and cardboard over the East facing windows trick and it seems to be helping a little bit. It's not classy but effective. We can keep it about 10 degrees below the outside temperature but that doesn't mean much when it's over 100. The worst part is that we don't get enough cooling at night. Normally we can cool the house way down overnight with fans in the windows. This morning we only got it down to 78 before having to shut everything.
