Default Who'* kicking in the AC?

I've been out of town all weekend and enjoying the Bonnevilles great AC. Just got home and I'm fighting with myself whether or not to fire up the central air.

I can deal with the house being freezing cold, I've got plenty of sweaters and blankets. Hot is a different story though.

We have all the windows open and fans going as well. I can't sleep at night with it being this hot though. If it doesn't cool down I'm going to have to give in and fire up the AC

We finally broke 70'* here. 72 for the high today. We may hit 90 a couple times a year. Some years it never gets above the low to mid 80'*. Plus I live in a deep hollow. The sun comes over the east mountain around 8am and goes down over the one to the west about 4pm. Makes for cool afternoon all summer.

I'm with you Tommy..I can't sleep unless it'* cool in the house. I'm a natural blast furnace anyway and I prefer the cold. Not Penguin slipping herring into my mouth cold, but slightly above that!

We've been pushing mid 80'* here for the last month. The first couple weeks of spring we were in the 90'*. Didn't have AC in my car when I first moved here from Wisconsin. Won't make that mistake again. By the time I got wherever I happend to be going my clothes would be soaked and going down the highway with the windows down in 90 degree weather is still 90 degrees. You can always tell the cars in this area that don't have AC. The headliners drop due to the adhesive drying out.
