Out of the Blue

When we finally got an air conditioner last year I got a lot of comments suggesting not having one represented some sort of attempt to deny the necessity of such things. But this year the weather in these parts is much more in line with what we're used to in our typically cool abode, and it's remained so comfortable in the BlueTower throughout the season that as we approach the end of August the AC sits in the basement, where it was put away last autumn. There is still almost a month of summer remaining, but it's hard to imagine we'll need it this year. The fact is, the temperatures have been so moderate that I've hardly had to use the AC in my office, which is the one place it is usually required. Sympathies if the summer (or winter down under) hasn't been as gentle where you are, but since this seems to compensate a bit for an insanely cold winter, I won't feel that guilty for enjoying this.
