As you may have heard from other Seattle blogs, it is hot out here. Surprisingly, untypically, extremely hot. Triple digit territory, which would be cause for remark in other parts of the country.
Here, its a bit weirder than in most parts of the country. We aren't a place that gets this kind of heat often, and as such, we don't do a lot as far as air conditioning. When we moved out here over ten years back, we brought along the room air conditioner from Wisconsin, only to find that it would not fit in any windows in the house (they are sliders, not lifters). So right now we are spending as much time as possible in the lowest floor, and running the fans. The cats are OK so far, but are trying to emulate throw-rugs.
Work is slightly more of a challenge, in that some rooms have adequate HVAC and some don't. We're moving fans around to keep other departments cool.
It is going to be a fun week, and its only going to get hotter. Wish us luck.
