I’ve been doing camping in my basement for the past week because we have a disgusting weather! With the humidex factor, they say that we feel a weather between 38 and 44 degrees each day! The funniest part is that I had planned on installing central AC in my new house, but I just didn’t have the time to look around and find a good deal. You think this is the right time to shop around? man… I’ll be fooled by the AC guy for sure… so I wait in my basement camp!
