I personally don’t guess it’s strange that I didn’t have a toiling a/c for the last few years.
All of our friends did, of course.
When they saw our log lodge, sitting on the edge of a attractive lake, they were impressed. Once they went inside and felt how sizzling and stuffy it got, they never wanted to come back. I didn’t get offended, because I understood that all of our friends are spoiled brats that cannot handle a few hours without temperature control, but most people have become dependent on air conditioner, and they guess quite uncomfortable when they have to go without it. They would ask “how can you live without ?” And I would explain that I just opened the windows to let in some natural ventilation to cool the locale down. My only complication was not with cooling, but with heating. The winters around here can get bitterly cold, and snowstorms will frequently knock out the power lines. Although life can be a little stifling and uncomfortable without , a lack of heating can be lethal in the cold weeks. Thankfully our lodge has a fireplace made of stone and stone. I keep many weeks worth of firewood in the drying rack next to the fireplace, which means I don’t need electricity to keep myself warm; During the Wintertide our lodge and our fireplace are both truly popular with our friends. Once the summer time starts they don’t come over as often, preferring to stay in the comfort of the air conditioner they have in their homes.
