Please don't say it is so! I suffered thru/ such awful hot summers as a child . . . one of my first purchases after college was a window A/C. There is only so much a breeze can do when the breeze feels like an oven blast.

Native has nothing to do with it. I am from NC and could NOT deal without AC!

Also lived near Syracuse, NY and could NOT deal with AC either!

At least your electric bill should be lower...right?

That is true. Cutting the air up and down and up and down does make the bill high.

Have you thought about your wife wrapping up?

She can put on more than you can take off and still stay comfortable.

ani - I need to dig up more of that awful clay and replace it with some sandy topsoil on one side of my house. I did the other three sides last year. I also want to rip out the Shumard Oak sapling that the builder planted between the sidewalk and the road and replace it with a male Ginkgo tree in really good soil, so it doesn't come out of a clay "hump". You're right about AC tho'. I suspect Charlotte would have about 100,000 residents if it wasn't for AC. You, Barb and loves, would be "internet Eudora Weltys" typing with one hand while fanning yourselves and drinking lemonade with the other.

LOL over 9 years we seem to make it work

For some reason your last sentence makes me think of the commercial where the guy goes "Blinds Closed" and he drops the house coat! Anywho....

I am in the same boat as you. I burn up and the other 1/2 freezes.

We are constantly going behind each other and adjusting the thermostat.

Thank GOD for equal payment plan at Duke Energy...right?

Oh - I love Ginkgos!!!! They were very prevalent in Kansas City (one variety). You are gonna be busy, Em. This clay is - well - clay and sometimes like a brick.

And no . . . I don't fan myself. When I get hot, I take a sheet, soak it in the bathtub and wrap up in it in front of a fan. (But dear lord - don't make me live w/o the A/C!!!!)

And that would be Sweetened Ice Tea in my hand b/f 5 pm and a G&T w/ a twist after 5 pm, Hee Hee.
