Just a quick note to show a photo of an important new addition to the shop. Last Fall a neighbor said that they had a large window air conditioner that I could have if I wanted it.
I waited all Fall, Winter, Spring, and half of the Summer, but did get the big unit installed this week. We have had a very mild Summer here in Kansas, with lots of rain, cloudy days, and cooler weather than normal. So, why rush into installing the window a/c unit?
Then, I saw the forecast for this week to be normal heat, lots of sun, and so I knew it was time for the installation. So, this week, I have been enjoying the coolness of working in front of an air conditioner.
For those of you that are suffering with heat, and not wanting to go out in the shop, this type of relief may be just the thing you should consider. I’m sure it is expensive to run it, but it is more expensive for me to be sitting in the house not working because I am exhausted and too hot.
Just thought I would share,
