The first year we were here we thought we would be smarter than the millions of people before us and not turn on the A/C upon our arrival in August. This, combined with the fact that we basically lived in a creek, resulted in such an epic black mold problem we had to switch apartments.
From then on we have been on the A/C from April to October bandwagon and boy is it awesome. While I miss fresh air for six months of the year, I am happy that the humidity is staying outside. Controlling the indoor air temperature is quite the art in the south - I swear it is colder indoors in the summer than in the winter. I am now in the habit of bringing a sweater with me when we go anywhere in the SUMMER.
"Record heat" "High Humidity" "Triple digit temps" and "For the next five days"
How does some iced coffee and the promise of A/C at a movie sound?
P.S. Can I say how excited we are for an upcoming trip back home??
