Oh my goodness 106! Uggh miserable for sure without air conditioning. Sorry you are going through this and I hope you get a replacement air conditioner quickly. It's not fun having to go to bed with wet cloths on just to sleep. I used to do that when I lived in my trailer and my air conditioner didn't work. I'd soak two big beach towels, put one under me and one on top of me then put the fan right next to the bed. I'd even take short naps in the bathtub! We've been having the opposite problem here for the last few days. This is the coldest September I can remember! Right now it's 49 degrees and I'm freezing! I've got my thermal pajamas on and still cold. Very unusual for us. We don't usually get this cold until late October. I just keep the hot coffee and tea flowing and my little couch blanket handy! I hope this isn't an indication that we're going to have a long cold winter. Hope it cools off for you soon my friend.

Poor you! It is annoying lying there because when it is too hot to sleep it is too hot to think, too, isn't it.

So did they fix the AC and are things better now? What part broke down, is it a common fault, anything you want us to watch out for in case our AC breaks down?

Has it cooled down a tad yet? I know how you feel Lakota..I've never had AC in my apt...a fan only does so much (like just circulate hot air...yuck)...during our very hot days here I would have to race to the kitchen and literally dunk water on my head to cool me down...at night I would have wetted paper towels of cold water and pat myself with them Thankfully our weather has cooled off really well now..we're actually in the high 60s or low 70s now...Keep cool!

OMG....where are you? Here where I live all the hot weather is gone, its starting to get cooler, I think fall is just around the corner, our temps. have been in the 70's to middle 80's these past few days. We've also gotten alot of rain, I think its because of the hurricanes, I don't think we'll see any more 90 degree weather from here on out. I live in Oklahoma....I know what its like being hot tho, just a couple months ago we were getting 100+ temps. and it was miserable, I could imagine if your AC doesn't work, I wouldn't be able to sleep either. I hope things cool off for you where your at soon...take care...

I don't know how bad is the heat in your place but our place is hot hot hot and am sure if you're here you will not be able to tolerate the heat. I am so used to this kind of condition. I am very sensitive to coldness and do not like to sleep in an aircon room.
