    Default It's a hot one!

    I know a lot of us are experiencing a pretty hot summer so far so i'll try to not sound so whiny. But it's SOOOOO HOT in Pasadena right now, and there's even a forecast of chance of rain later today!! I just got back from Target to buy a 2nd fan 'cuz my AC is not worth

    I'm doing my best to keep the house cool right now; both Tate and Finn seem a bit lethargic and have been sleeping a lot. I've been giving them ice water and put some wet hand towels in the freezer to put on their bodies. I ordered a couple cooling bandannas and a cooling pad but that'll take a few days to get here yet. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    It's 97 here right now and we're all inside just chillin' watching Smokey and the Bandit. Way to hot to be outside. For what it's worth, we went and bought a portable AC unit at Home Depot a couple of weeks ago for our bedroom. What a big difference it's made. Our house AC works fine but our bedroom is upstairs and the highest part of the house and it gets too warm so this year we broke down and bought the portable unit. It's awesome and can be put in any room in the house. Just a thought?

    My air has not shut off for over a month, I think it is around 100 degrees outside right now, thank god I have tile through out my house, Vegas flops on the cool tile and passes out. When I took him to visit a friend it was so warm in her house that Vegas was panting! I got a hand towel and wet it with cold water and laid it across his back as he was laying down. I am fortunate my house is cool!! We go straight out, potty and straight back in.

    yea it's 101 here so we don't spend too much time outside either, least it gets a little cooler a dusk and can go out. the wet wash cloths work good and the portable a/c unit that @JeannieCO talked about sounds pretty good. Try to stay cool.

    AC is on but upstairs needs help. Got a ceiling fan in my bedroom so kitties are lying belly up on my bed enjoying the soft breeze. Bullies downstairs are cool and love to lie on the kitchen linoleum frog style. I keep changing their water and adding crushed ice. BabyGirl has returned to being bratty by sloshing her paws in the water. Errrrrgggg!!!!!

    We first thought about a window mounted unit and then my husband's employee mentioned the portables. I wasn't so sure about them but didn't want the mounting with screws into the window frame. The portable ranges from $299, $399 & $499. Here's the one we got. homedepot.com/Appliances-Heating-Cooling-Air-Quality-Air-Conditioners-Portable-Air-Conditioners/h_d1/N-5yc1vZbv64/R-202562961/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053

    I've seen similar units at Sam's as well.

Way to hot for Jake..and me..we brought it up with us and it worked great! We just got a small one..and I love it!

    @JeannieCO let me know how it works, was thinking of getting one for their room or as @JAKEISGREAT said in case our main unit ever went out.

    It works fantastic!!! There's a plastic plate that goes into the window and then you close the window back down. Ours is the 11,000 btu and keeps our bedroom at a cool 73 (our room is large - 15' x 25'). Normally with our AC on all day at 72 our room is 78-80 with stagnant air (way too hot for me, lol). There's a 5" (maybe 6") diameter accordion style hose that you vent out the window. It's about 6ft so you can move the unit around a bit. I cannot believe we have not done this sooner. I set the timer to come on around 3pm and the bedroom is nice and cool when I get home. Then for nighttime I usually open our windows and turn the main AC off and then run the portable on a timer for a couple of hours. Jeannie's a happy camper now.
