Out of the Blue

Today is this 61st anniversary of the launch of the D-Day invasion in World War II.

Well, the spring-like period in our area seems to have ended, having lasted a bit longer than usual in what is basically a two-season region. It was scorching around these parts yesterday, and while most of our house is quite livable in warm conditions, thanks to high ceilings (or low floors) and ceiling fans, my office is in our finished attic, which tends to run even hotter than outside. So while it was 90 outside and 75 inside, it was probably closer to 105 up here. In spite of my best intentions, somehow over the past couple of years I have failed to replace the air conditioner up here, but now it seems more-or-less dead, rather than just under-powered, so I can't imagine making it through this summer without addressing this cooling conundrum once and for all.
