Out of the Blue

Well, now that it's August, I guess I'll have to admit defeat in my efforts at convincing MrsBlue we should acquire a portable air conditioner. At this point if I bring it up, I'm sure she'll simply counter with the logic that we made it this far without one, and it will be cooler soon. On the other hand, it's never too early to start the push for next summer.

Man, at least get a little window unit for the bedroom so you can sleep easier. I would think that would be a decent compromise.

Isn't that anti-productive though?

All of the wall units I've seen/experienced are quite loud, even on low settings. So they might be good for cooling down the room before naptime but once you go to sleep you'd need to turn it off.

Then again it could be that there are quiet ones out there I've simply not seen. Since I've lived with Central Air for over 20 years my experience with wall units is limited to my brother's and a couple of friends' that I've seen.

For those of us that live in the big city - the white noise is a nice welcome to replace the horns, dogs, people, vehicles, trains, planes, etc etc etc.
