Air Conditioning

I'm forcing my family to not use the air conditioner in the house. No one has put up a fuss or really even mentioned it. Yesterday was the test -- it reached 89 degrees and was a bit sultry.

My plan is to let us acclimate to the warmth and then we won't care about air conditioning. It seems to be working.

We leave the windows open, use a couple of ceiling fans, and setup a floor standing fan to cool my daughter in her bedroom. She's like a furnace. Winter is her best time.

This morning I noticed a north wind blowing. Usually during the summer this means cooler weather is moving in. As always, heat is short lived in Minnesota.

I've never lived in a house with a/c until last fall. We got a new furnace and an a/c unit while we were at it. It was my wife's idea; she was very pregnant last summer, and therefore hot.

I tried to say, "Pregnant women deserve air conditioning. Don't deny them the comfort, if they want it."
