I ordered a portable air-conditioner several weeks ago. Since then, it has arrived and I’ve set it up in my bedroom. It hasn’t got hot enough for me to need to really use it but I have turned it on twice to ensure it’s working.
We’re fast approaching August now and I know it will stay cool enough for me to not need the air-conditioner. Had I not bought the A/C, we would have experienced at least one more heat wave. It’s just how it works.
I will need it next summer though. Climate change has come far along enough that it will no longer seem odd that parts of British Columbia will be hotter than Las Vegas.
