Lovin' the layouts you were able to complete--even with the heat.
When we lived in Fairbanks, there were hardly any homes with air-conditioning... maybe a window one as a rarity. A man living down the street from us had one in his front room window and used it when the temps rose into the 80s and 90s during the summer. He had some health issues and needed the a/c. We were always so jealous that he was cool.
I have a photo of Steve and me sitting in our front room, curtains drawn to block out the sun, hoping to reduce the heat in the house. We owned four fans, and we brought them all into the front room, plugged them in and set them on the highest speed in a semi-circle around us, as we binged on popsicles. It was the best we could do during the heatwaves. We were always so thankful that the soaring temperatures only lasted a few days, before we would become "normal" again.
