Nah, you will find your finale' in the "good place". Doubt the other place allows AC, which most use now.         =^..^=

Do you have AC?  We don't, and last year was awful.  Pretty much no one in SF has AC, including malls or theaters.


No AC in malls or theaters? I didn't know that. Here in NJ, some people go to malls or theaters just to escape the heat, especially, if you aren't a beach person! 😎 I didn't grow up with AC and neither did anyone that I knew but I don't remember all this humidity. Most people here have central AC and all the malls, theaters and most public places have it as well. I would hate to live without it!

Re: We are Under a Heat Advisory!

We have a predicted high of 76 degrees today but right now it is only 65 degrees.  Here in the Seattle area we are breaking records on consecutive days without any rain.  I wish we would get some - I am not used to watering my yard!  The lawns are all dry and crunchy.  Hello global warming.

  Oh goodness yes, if we didn't have AC I would've melted by now.

  Do you use swamp coolers?

  I know that's what they use in AZ, because the humidity is so low. I'd never heard of them until we went out there. Or they call them evaporation (?) coolers.....and the static electricity was so bad, it was unreal.....we had to get a humidifier to cut down on it.

 

  I don't know anything about CA weather but I had no idea they didn't even have AC in businesses. Wow....anyway, what makes it bad here is the humidity. "It's not the heat it's the humidity."

 

  I like it in AZ because there was no lawn to mow, no humidity, no mold etc.

Glad it's cooling(?) Down for you there. It is almost nice here today, it is only 90° and it is way past noon. Thank you for your reply.

I don't know about all of CA, but SF is known for no AC because we have fog cooling us most of the summer.  There must be some kind of cooling systems in malls but they are no place to go to cool off, I've tried 😧

 

I have fans for every room and my desk.  Just bought a new one from HSN that, so far, is amazing.  What really gets me is that the city has NO cooling centers for the elderly and disabled.  They are in neighboring cities but not here 😡
