Did anyone use their AC yesterday?

It was 77 degrees in our house at bedtime last night, and both me and my daughter wanted to put the AC on.

I was screamed at and repeatedly called an "asshole" and "trash." She argued that "You don't put your AC on when it's 75 degrees out." She aid that she "didn't really care, it's the principle of it" and "it's a waste of energy."

This from a person who insists on keeping the window by the couch wide open in January when it's 30 out and the heat is blasting....making watching tv a frigid experience. "Because I like fresh air."

I usually put the AC on 76 during day and 74 at night.

I run the heat at 68 during day and 66 at night.

So personally, I know I sleep ok between 66 and 74.

She insisted all we need to do was open a window, but I felt like if it really was 75 out at 10pm, the open window wasn't going to cool down the house at all in a short period of time. A quick blast of AC (set un 74, it's not like it was going to run all night), however, would.



I went on vacation with my brother last September, to Arizona and Utah. He insisted on running the AC on the airbnb and the motel suite at 60, because "that's what people sleep best at" and "I don't care about the energy, I'm not paying for it." As soon as he as asleep, I would sneak to the thermostat and put the AV on 70 or something more reasonable than 60.

I had written off running today, but when I checked the hourly at 8pm, already an hour into my workday, I saw that there wasn't wain until 10. So on went the running gear.

Halfway into the five mile loop, the sky breaks open. Freaking amazing.

A quick blast of your attic fan would have settled the argument.

We clearly need to add funding to the National Weather Service to improve our short term weather forecasting models to address this national emergency. And launch a nationwide fitness program to increase our running speed, so that we can outrun the weather.

Or maybe just, y'know, check the radar. Hourly forecasts are shite.

I'm not sure my house's attic fan is even working. And I know we don't have radar.

I didn't realize you post from North Dakota. I always assumed you were a local.
