Living Without AC on the Prairie and A Dog Rescue

By: plapman , 10:58 AM GMT on July 23, 2012

Today will be clear in the morning, then partly cloudy. The high will be 28C(82.4). Winds less than 5 km/h.
Tonight will be mostly cloudy with a low of 16C(60.8f). Winds less than 5 km/h.
------------------------------------------------- --
Are we ever getting spoiled.Yesterday with no air everyone was complaining. Luckily my basement is finished and the Queen and I sleep there. I remember as a kid living in a 2 story house with no air my bedroom was on the upper floor. Yesterday's heat in the house was nothing compared to that.

After reading YLee's comment I checked the weather near him. the 40c(104f) temps would kill me. I guess like we on the northern edge get used to the cold winters the people in warmer climes get used to the heat. I can't imagine what it would be like along the GOM with the high humidity and temps like that.
Yesterday after working trying to fix my ccomputer I finally got it working. Luckily I had a restore point only a week old and using it fixed my problems. I was just about ready to restore it to the original factory settings.
yesterday on our walk Abbey and me rescued a pom type dog. The little black dog started following us then started barking at Abbey and Abbey went into protective mode. If I had\n't of told Abbey to wait she would have given that little dog the shake and broke it's neck. I tried to catch the little guy to bring home and wait for a lost dog and to return him but he kept one step ahead of me and returned home where his owner met us at the door. It was sure a good ending where he could have been taken to the pound and put down or stolden.

Good morning Tony. Hot and windy here at the moment. Put the trash out at the roadside for pick up and thank goodness for that wind. Without it, it would have been stifling out. Temps are suppose to go up around l00F today. Those Southern girls just turned their fans in our direction instead so now we are getting the blast. STINKERS....LOL

Hope you get your AC fixed soon. Have a great day dear ones.
