We are beginning the heat wave that is hitting much of the US this week. It’s nothing like what the folks in TX just live with during the summer.. but hey, it’s Maryland for crying out loud 😉
To make matters worse, before heading for evening service at church, we heard a funny motor sound outside our kitchen window. Upon investigating, we found our AC unit was frozen from the unit to the house, a solid hose of ice with a super funny looking glob of ice where you would re-fill the freon. Oh yay 😦
It hearkens me back to my childhood home before we had central AC put in. My parents had a window unit in their bedroom and I remember sitting in their room on the bed during nasty hot Iowa summer days, reading or playing games. I remember whenever we entered or left the room, we would do it as quickly as possible, trying NOT to let any of the cold air escape.
Depending on when the landlord can get to the repair with the repairman, we may all be huddling in our master bedroom.. playing games or telling stories. Or just hovering in our basement. Which is where we are now 😉 I hope you guys are all surviving the heat!!
