The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.

I'm so ready for this heat to go away... :sweaty: We must get air conditioning.

My neighborhood (constructed in the 1980s) was about 50%. Up to that point in the Pacific NW, A/C was not considered a requirement for new homes. We had it installed after two hot summers.

Most new homes have it installed - the average temperatures during the summer have been rising, and this week in particular is bad... Highs in the 30C range - today was a high of 33C.

I am currently wearing a sweatshirt and shorts, because the downstairs is cold when the main floor is trying to be cooled to a temperature that Mrs. Reasons can stand.

We have a couple window units for spot air conditioning, and an evaporative cooler that covers most of the rest of the main floor. That's it, though.

In fact, I've never had whole house AC anywhere I've lived.

I wish, though. I can't sleep comfortably if the temperature is above about 50F/10C, so I have spent many summers perpetually miserable and sleep deprived.

My current house has an in-wall unit in the family room, but nothing in the rest of the house. That's not unusual in Michigan but I haven't lived anywhere without central air in a very long time, having spent most of the last 20 yrs in Texas and Georgia. We have a "whole house fan" (which some call an 'attic fan') that did a good job of creating airflow throughout the house before the motor burned out. That being said I've only had the a/c on a few days so far this summer. I guess living on a lake it doesn't get as brutally hot indoors as it does in some places.

We only have two portable a/cs and they suck. (Technically they suck and blow.) In the Pacific Northwest a/c is not standard. Though most places have them and all new places are built with them. This house was built in 1975 and didn't even have central heating, but someone added that between now and then.

Thankfully today is supposed to be the last 100+ degree day and things will cool off. Right now it is a fantastic 70:degrees: but I know things will be heating up quickly so I am ready to close up tight at a moments notice.

NotAllAmericans… live in terraformed deserts or swamps, just many.

I remember Las Vegas in the 90s going from my grandma’s fancy house, to the air conditioned garage, to the air conditioned car, to the underground and air conditioned parking garage, to the freaken air conditioned tubed walkway between the garage and the fancy restaurant, which was of course air conditioned. It felt a bit like living on Mars where we could travel about without ever interacting with outside un treated air.

It was ridiculously hot and humid here (90:degrees:F and 85-90% humidity) for the past week but yesterday and today it has been downright chilly.

We had unseasonably cool weather for the first part of August. Had.

Now it's crazy stupid motherfucking hot. 101:degrees:F, 38:degrees:C, every day since last Friday. :heat: But it's a dry heat! 12% humidity. Fucking Arizona shit, man. Tomorrow is s'posed to be merely too fucking hot, at 94:degrees:F / 34:degrees:C, and trend downward the rest of the week -- but you can't always trust the spostas.

In four hours this morning, we got something like 3.7" of rain, which is over 25% of our average annual rainfall. The basement only flooded a little.

It at least temporarily cooled things down some, and we needed it, but it's still scary how crazy everything has gotten so quickly.
