I take it back!



UPDATE: Think Snow!




(Somehow I don't think this will work.)

UPDATE: I ordered 100 pounds of ice to be delivered tomorrow morning. That will probably work a lot better.

1 Could be worse. You could live in one of those negative zipcodes.

2 Meanwhile here we've got a whole week of rainy weather with the high below 90. Maybe we got your weather and you got ours by mistake?

Nah, this usually happens for a few days in August. It's not like other places (Texas) where it goes on for weeks; usually it's 2-5 days, once or maybe twice each summer.

It's rare enough so that it isn't worth it to get air conditioning, even if there were anywhere in this apartment to mount it, which there isn't. A hundred pounds of ice delivered is about $35; I can afford it. The only reason it's a hassle is that Safeway has a $49 minimum for orders, so I ordered a couple of other things to bring it up to that. (And the delivery fee this time is $13. )

I'm probably going to do the same for the other two days before the heat breaks.
