Eleven-thirty at night—you'd think it'd cool off. The only downside of our lovely house is that it has radiator heat, so installing central air would be prohibitively expensive. We've put a window air-conditioner in the upstairs sun-porch so that it and our two bedrooms will be cool, but in the rest of the house we must make do with open windows and fans. It's bloody hot. Hot I say. I'm going to have to go upstairs and hide in the air-conditioning, maybe read a book; I cannot stay down here at the computer right now. I'll try again later.

we have radiators and central air... sort of
Our house is "cooled" by two vents, each lead down to the first floor by vents that hide in two of the bedroom closets. It kind of works, and it's better than the previous situation, when the house was cooled by the air vents from the attic to the bedroom ceilings of which there are 3.

Keeping the shades drawn makes a big difference at our house.
