Air Conditioners and Siestas

Rarely am I thankful for air conditioning (which used to mean driving with all the windows down) but at 38 degrees Celsius today I was thankful the trailer we are living in can be made happily cool. We parked where the barn shades it from the afternoon sun and that helps too.


I can hardly imagine how folks in the south handled the heat before its invention (afternoon naps/siestas, I guess). We have started doing that on the really hot days, taking a break between 2:00 and 4:00 pm. It makes it only a 10 hour day then from 8:30 am to 8:30 pm.

Not much else to do here but work, but then, work isn’t really work to people who love what they do and that would be us.

  1. It’s what I call stupid hot. And no end in sight for this heat wave.
