Heatwave '07, kinda

I don't really think it was a heatwave. It was more of an unusual spike in temperature that caused everyone to be a tad uncomfortable in the Pacific Northwest. For a single day, that is.

So Miranda got to try out her new Dora the explorer sprinkler and she was not at all happy about it. I don't know if Michelle got any pictures but she might have. If she did, I will post them up for all to see. Also decided that I would bring up our Whirlpool Portable Air Conditioner and try it out. Installation was a bear and the instructions were pretty horrible. But once installed, it worked like a charm. A 90lb charm that I had to lug up the stairs.

Our neighbors on both side of us have followed our lead and gotten air conditioning. People in this area just don't understand that concept. We were in a hotel on San Juan Island... no air conditioning, just a fan.

Let me guess... your house isn't duct'd for central air?

The ductwork is there, but the area by the heater does not have room. The cheapest estimate was $8000 to bring in a welder and metal worker to basically create a custom air conditioner blower unit for our house.

$8000 for central air, or <$1000 for 2 portable roll around units....
