116°?!!?? I really have no idea how hot hell is, but I’m pretty sure we have to be close. So how is this good? I find a lot of good in this crazy hot weather. Don’t get me wrong, I’m tired of it since it’s been over 100° for over a month now. Okay, here’s my ‘good’ in it:
My mobile thermometer. I’m glad my car has this temperature feature. That might not seem like a big deal to anyone reading this, but my car is 15 years old. I like simple ‘old-fashioned’ gadgets like this, not the complicated computers they have in all of the new cars now. You can say I’m getting old and I like old stuff, but I love technology, so I don’t think that’s the case. I just don’t need technology everywhere and on everything in my life.
Southern living. I lived in Wisconsin and in Chicago, Illinois long enough to know I love living in the south. I’d rather deal with this heat for a couple of months rather than the snow and cold. Last time I was in Wisconsin, that little gadget said -17°.
Cool off! Although the A/C in my car works, it’s not the coldest air ever. And let’s not even talk about my electric bill even though I keep my thermostat set on 80°. But we do have air conditioning. Down in Mexico, only 8 hours away in drive time, there’s many people without this luxury. They have hotter temperatures than we do… without anything to cool them off. Sure, you can say, “They’re used to it…”, but really? It’s good that I can afford, and have… air conditioning.
