Heat Wave

Although some people in America believe that Minnesota is a cold, wind-swept barren land of ice and snow, I'm hear to tell you that it's only that way for about four or five months out of the year.

In the summer, it can get hot. Damn hot. Like, holy hell I'm burning alive hot. Mix that in with the Minnesota humidity factor, and you get some unforgivably uncomfortable days in a Minnesota summer.

For example, it's supposed to hit the triple digits this weekend. That's WARM.

I mention all of this only because my central air conditioning unit died a couple weeks ago. Dead. The compressor is shot, and its a 20+ year old unit, so repairing it is kind of stupid. So, I need a new unit, but there's no way I'll get a new unit ordered, delivered and installed before this weekend, so I'll be enduring this sucker the way the frontiersmen did.

I'm so not looking forward to this.

That sucks dude! Looks like you will be doing a bunch of shopping this weekend. But hey... look at all of the electricity you will be saving!

Hi Ryan, from Perth, Western Australia. Your story has touched my heart. Do you have a PayPal account I can make a charitable donation to?

The kind of weather that makes you want to step out of your skin and walk around in your bones.
