Hi from the pacific NW where it's been between 85-92* for almost a week. We usually have cool wet weather even in the summer, not this year, last summer too. It got so unusually warm I bought an air conditioner for my bedroom. I put it in the garage for the winter to protect it and when I put it back in the window 2 weeks ago it lasted for one and quit. 3 weeks past the one year warranty, I'M NOT HAPPY.
I'm waiting to hear back from the manufacturer, to see if they will replace it or if I have to spend another $260.00 to get a new one.
My fish aren't to happy either, the temp hasn't dropped but 15* or so at night, so the tank temp started to climb in the 2-10 tanks. One has Fry and the other has very young 1 1/2 to 2" BN Plecos. 2 Green Dragon BN & 3 Long Fin Albino BN Plecos. I've been making ice with Prime/tap in them so that I can just drop some in every now & then it drops the temp. So far none of them seem to mind. I try not to let the water get to hot before I add ice, so they don't get stressed out by the temp change. All of us need our cool air back.
Some one should start a thread on clever ways to stay cool when the weather gets like this. I would do it myself but I don't know any clever and not so clever ways to stay cool. I just complain about it, it doesn't help.

Lol yea but the air coming through the window at 70mph might over power the fan.

A car fan is only about $10.00, but they don't work all that well.
I got one for my SUV and it just moves the hot air around. Which is the same as having the windows down.

10 years ago I put $500.00 into my SUVs air conditioner and it didn't work again by the fallowing summer, so I gave up.

So now we use my daughters car in the summer. It has a really great air conditioner, since it's a 2009. Then we use my SUV with snow tires in the winter, cause it has an incredible heater. It's really warm even in cold snowy and/or icy weather.
