The AC is Out

The AC is Out! And it's going to be 104! Not a pleasant prospect, this poet was wishing for. The house gets hotter than an oven. The cat will lie still and be far from movin'! Fans just don't do the trick! When you feel like a lit candle wick! Showers only add humidity to muck. Where's the AC repairman on a day like this, oh, my friend, you are out of luck!

Not a perfect situation for anyone...not even a cat. Glad to see your daughter helped out. I remember many a day like that when I lived in L.A.

LA is toasty. Ouch. I have lived there and had two jobs in Beverly Hills. LA was sane back then. Loaded with problems now,as is SF. SF needed no AC. That honey of a fog, oops poem idea)) I live in the Central Valey. Beautiful and hot in summer,but oh, I love Northern CA

Hello Panagiota Romios, I can relate to this: The AC went out, a hot humid day. Taking care of a dog that had Cancer. It was not easy. Windows open and the fans blowing all day and most of the night. We did this for a week. Got a new Ac then we all felt better. Have a nice day my friend. hugs. Darlene

Hello Darlene. How sweet you are to care for a dog with cancer. I have been down that road with cats. We do have a new AC. My daughter came by and checked my thermostat. All it needed was new batteries. Thank the Lord. Wishing you a most wonderful day, my friend....hugs Panagiota
