Currently in Kerrville TX (Low 74 Mostly Sunny: HOT High 102)
To paraphrase 'Airplane: The Movie", we picked a bad time to have our bedroom a/c go out. It has been HOT here lately. Luckily we have a 2nd air conditioner but it just couldn't keep up. To help in our comfort we bought a Vornado fan and an 'Artic Air'.
We also put up some reflecting material on a few of the windows. There was a couple hours each day that were almost unbearable but we survived. The 'Artic Air' worked better in the smaller bedroom, it did put out cooler air. We were also very impressed with the Vornado fan.
The good news is that our new air conditioner was installed yesterday. Even with both air conditioners the temperature inside still rises with both of them running, but certainly not to the uncomfortable levels with only 1.
Another sad time is that we are at the end of the fresh peach season.
Locals tell us this was one of the best peach season ever. There are a lot of varieties and we sampled as many as we could, probably a dozen or so. Early on it was the cling type then we move to the semi-freestone type and then ended with the freestone. We had so many varieties that were down the arm juicy that it is difficult to pick our favorite. We had peaches over pancakes, over ice cream, we made a compote, but the best was to bite and then wipe juice off our arm. Sadly we are at the end of the season. Early peaches and late peaches are hit and miss taste wise but if they are available we will keep buying.
With the heat we haven't been doing much except doctor appointments, shopping and eating out. We try to do all that early and get back home before the major heat of the day.
Till next time,
Bob and Jo
