    we had ac just in my parents bedroom. when i got back from school my mom had the temp down to 68f. we ate dinner in there, watched tv in there till bedtime. when the east coast blackout hit in the 1960s we sweated ourselves to sleep.

    People used to wet their sheets before bed. True story, well in the desert anyway.

    I don't want to go outside when it's this hot but I don't have AC either. AC is seen as an add on in my state.
