Last summer, the two of us were in the middle of a brutal heatwave. The two of us had the air conditioner component running constantly, plus it wasn’t able to keep up with the heat. The two of us had a bowl of ice sitting in front of the fan, in an effort to help offset the air conditioner. Nothing seemed to be working. The two of us were walking around in our shorts plus t-shirts, hoping to catch a breath of cool air. I had a lot of work to do, which I did from home. I sat in my office, plus I could recognize the humidity building around me. There was sweat rolling down my face plus into my eyes, but that didn’t stop the fact that I had a deadline to reach. I still had to keep working. I would get up every once in a while plus get a chilly glass of water plus an ice cube. I had to do whatever I could to stay cool. My hubby got home from work, plus he was shocked at how sizzling it was in the house. He checked the thermostat in the dining room, plus it learn ninety-one degrees. He tapped the thermostat plus looked at me oddly. He asked if it had been appreciate this all morning. I told him yes. I told him about the ice cubes plus trying to get the current home cool. He went back to the home office plus brought out some batteries. The two of us had been hearing the fans running, but not the air conditioner. The thermostat batteries had died plus the thermostat was no longer giving the direction to the AC component to start running.
