There have been so many hurricanes in our part of the world lately! We live on the coast in the southeast part of the country, and this year’s hurricane season has just been brutal. We’ve had three major storms and a ton of flooding to go along with them. Because of all of the terrible weather that we’ve been having, we’ve had a whole lot of electrical outages, as you can probably imagine. Well, when you don’t have electricity, your indoor air quality goes right down the toilet really quickly. No electricity means no heating, but we don’t really need heating down there in that part of the country very much. But no electricity also means no air conditioning. And when you live where I do, having no air conditioning is just a terrible thing! The heat and the humidity down there is nothing short of terrible. My house withstood the hurricane okay, with no real structural damages, but the basement where my heating and central air conditioning unit was located actually flooded and was full of about ten inches of water. So the heating and the A/C in my house were completely ruined. And so the house was just a terrible mess. It was so hot and humid in there that I couldn’t even stand it. I couldn’t even run a window air conditioning unit in the house since I didn’t have any A/C! Now all of the rebuilding and hurricane relief efforts are going on, but I don’t even want to be in that house until it’s fixed and the air conditioning is running again. I just can’t take the heat and the humidity.
