It gets hotter every day!

I don't know if we'll survive Summer! The air that enters our house is warm to almost hot, despite the electric fans which continuously swing in rooms, sala & kitchen. We can't afford an aircon unit installed in the house (maybe yes to the unit, but not to the electric consumption it will command). Not in this part of this city with its skyrocketting charges. So, my dearest daughter No. 3 bought an Aircool for me. We put 3 bags of ice on its lower part deck, plus a frozen jell-like pack & a bit of water. Just switch it to an outlet, there, you get a bit of cooler air. But not for long! After a little while, it also starts to emit warm air! Gosh! How about in your place? Do you enjoy snow or just like us here in this part of the Philippines where, I am afraid, our house might burn any minute?!

i couldnt agree more. the warm air seem suffocating. we have AC installed in our rooms but of course we have to pay for a higher electric bill soon but we dont mind. too hot or warm environment can cause a lot of problems, health problems.

bless yer heart - sendin' ya cool hugs! we've got air conditionin' here 'n i'm most thankful fer't. 'course, i'd rather jest've a better insulated place 'n the ability to open the windows'n jest let the breezes through like i used to. not possible i fear, that latter part. the breezes'f been too much 'n the house'd be filled with dust.

True. It's so hot that it doesn't feel normal anymore. I guess we're experiencing the revenge of nature because there are no trees around. Only houses, buildings and vehicles. I wear shirts and the color of my upper arms is different from the lower. Looks like I got toasted outside. I wish they'll lower the electricity charges so everybody can at least own an AC.
