Hot, hot, hot

When we arrived home from camping, the house was warmer than usual. I usually set the thermostat higher when we leave, but the display said it was 90 degrees. Upon adjusting the temperature lower, only hot air blew from the ducts. It was painfully obvious that the air conditioner was not working. Quickly windows were opened and fans installed throughout the house.
Living in the desert air conditioning is just a part of life. All homes have air or at the very least swamp coolers. The kiddos did not mind the heat, but our whole family moved quite a bit slower. We played a lot of games, read, knit and swam. It was not truly horrible, but the temperature on the last day was 94 degrees in the house! It took two days to find the right part for the motor and have our cool air restored. We are all thankful to have the cool air flowing again, but we are pleased to know that a little hot air won't stop our fun. It just slows it down!

    Oh wow! You are rock stars! I would have caved and moved straight into a hotel ;-).

  2. I probably would have headed right to a hotel or my in-laws and camped out in their house ;)

    Glad you were able to get the a/c fixed, though!
