I thought last week’s heat wave was the worst I would ever experienced in our life.
- Outdoor hot plus cold temperatures hovered around 110 degrees in the afternoons plus the low 90s at evening.
Usually the two of us get some respite after sundown, however not in this kind of weather. I will cut a sweat simply sitting still on our porch for more than a few hours at a time. My pet hates it too; most afternoons she sunbathes for hours on end, however while in this heatwave she hadrun back inside each time after doing her business. As awful as last week’s heat wave was, this week is looking love it might surpass the prior week’s intensity. All of us are forecasted to have highs close to 115 degrees next week. To make matters worse, I desperately need repairs on our a/c. The fan motor in the air handler needs to be substituted however all of the Heating plus A/C corporations in the section are backed up several weeks with service, replacement, plus service work. The earliest appointment I could find after aggressively calling around was next Sunday. Although I could realistically be waiting longer for repairs, it’s still daunting to assume I will have to make it through the next more than five afternoons separate from cooling system in our house. Not only am I going to.be miserable, however our pet will as well. I have considered buying a portable a/c to get through the next week, however it’s seriously taxing to justify the $200 purchase when I assume I truly won’t have a use for it after our central a/c is repaired. But, if I could sell it used for a small hit, it might be worth it. Going separate from cooling system in the south is awful enough as it is, however doing it while in a 115 degree heat wave is down right inconceivable. At the really least I assume our pet will love the effort plus the relief the equipment will bring us for the time being.
