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 also have radiators, and while the cost of adding AC is high, it has been coming down to something more reasonable. Our neighbors had it done two years ago and have no regrets. We are still waiting, though. We have a nice window unit on the 1st floor that does a good job of cooling the whole downstairs...if we have a crowd it gets a tad warm but not unbearably. We have units in several of the other rooms, but not in our bedroom. We keep our door open if it is really hot and take in the AC from Steves office and Devon's room.
