Out of the Blue

MrsBlue and I are currently working through a disagreement over whether to get a portable air conditioner. For ten years now we've been able to get by with only one AC unit, which is up in my office, relying on the high ceilings, ceiling fans, and other elements that keep the house bearable in the summer. This current heatwave has finally got me willing to give in on this, but as has been repeatedly demonstrated, my willpower pales in comparison with my better half's as she is remaining stubbornly steadfast in her refusal to consider this.

I would think that waiting until a heat wave is in progress to go air conditioner shopping will end in failure anyway.

Agreed, it's going to be like waiting until after a really bad winter begins to buy a snow blower.

Slim pickings and high prices.
