sometimes it's hard being green

Melbourne Weather
Now: 39°C Max: 39°C
Cloud and wind increasing

Is this the point I say "bugger the environment, it's time to turn on the brand spanking new air conditioner?"

I try not to turn it on until I can't breathe. I shut all the doors to bounce to air into the bedroom. I keep it at 24 degrees and I collect the water outside and put it on the garden. After that I don't feel guilty and I do turn it off as soon as possible. I do remember the days of sitting in a bath sponging down a very hot baby to get him to sleep so it's hard to be green when I think of that.

... an aquaintance ranted at me yesterday that the present fires in the high country are caused because the mountain cattlement had their stock run off by environmental authority.

I confess that today I used electricity (no air-con though). I wish it could be made without harming anything.

last night I slept on the verandah and a sheet and some aeroguard made it OK.
Enjoy tomorrows 20 degrees!

JahTeh, I keep mine at 24 degrees too, when I've got it on. I can't think why people want to be any cooler than that.

Having said that, my answer to AOF's question is "Yes".

The answer was I ran it for half an hour - when it hit 41c. Then fortune would have it, the cool change came. You've got to love Melbourne for that :)

Pre aircon favourite things to do when it was hot:
go to the local library (2 blocks walk away and blissfully cool), a quick cool shower then wrap self in a damp sarong, go to the movies (not in the sarong)...

If you intended to never use it, I guess you wouldnt have got it in the first place.
