Just Too Hot

The new air conditioner arrived today! After much struggling to get the 60 pound box in to the mobile home and out of the box, I managed to get it in to the window. Whew. It was 96 degrees in there. I had some hot dogs. After an hour it was 85 degrees. I think this new AC will work nicely!

I am still looking forward to the evaporative cooler's arrival on Wednesday. I want to put it in the hallway for my poor old cocker spaniel who likes the quiet down there. No rain in sight so it should work for a little while. I believe it has a 4 gallon reservoir but I can spare the water since I will be checking in on my co-worker's cat this weekend and filling up my water bottles at her house and doing my laundry. I still have around 200 gallons in my own tank too. I have been getting 5 gallons from work everyday for the dog's to drink and that has really helped stretch out my water supply.

I have an extra air conditioner now so I could put it in one of the other bedrooms so that I can organise in a cool room. Maybe I can actually get something done on this upcoming 3 day weekend.

Thats enough to remind you that you need your new home to be super insulated so it stays cool in summer, warm in winter etc. Surely no-one hears hot dogs without picturing ketchup and mustard???

Right now a cave home is sounding very nice.

Who doesn’t want to have an AC during the hot season? Yes, if only I can afford the monthly bills, I’ll have a centralized air conditioning system installed in our house! You’re an animal lover too, right? I also can’t afford to see my dog suffering from too much heat.
