After attempting to cool off this evening, I sat down and thought about why it was so damnably hot just in the bedroom and kitchen?
They are both western exposures.
They are both covered with appropriate shading to help them stay cool….BUT
heat just flows out from these two windows as if there is a blast furnace just on their other side.
So I asked my handy dandy man of all repairs (yes, that would be my neighbor Lee) if there was some way to seal them so the rooms would be cooler.
Lee said “sure”
and I waited….and waited…these country boys so rarely talk to make any explanation….and finally I asked..”so how would you do it?”
He grinned at me and said “take em out”.
I sort of stared at him for a minute while thinking about what the kitchen and bedroom would look like without those windows…………
and I thought “I can live with that”.
So tomorrow morning, when it is fairly cool, Lee will be over to take out these two windows and seal off the holes.
He said I am allowed to assist, but George has to just watch.
Smart man, that Lee.
