    Sadly, I could not take the heat anymore and actually turned on the AC tonight, and it's still frikkin' April! I don't even want to know what my electricity bill is going to look like in the coming months...

    I had mine on 2 days ago when it was about 80 degrees with unbearable humidity. Right now it is about 15 degrees out. One extreme to the next I guess.

    AC has been running for a month now, both at home and at work. Spring lasted exactly 17 hours by my calculations.

    As I get older, I find I am less able to tolerate this kind of heat and still function. When I was a kid, we didn't even have AC at home, and no one I knew had a car with AC.

    I'm with Joseph there. It's much more of a story when I turn off the A/C. While, the heat was a little delayed this year, the humidity has remained high and even in the mid 70s, you need A/C here to take out the humidity.

    Ummm... what's an AC? Seriously, we've never had one. In the summertime we sleep with a window open and then either close it in the middle of the night or put on a heavier blanket. We always need to put on a light jacket to go out in the morning.

    Today, it's been struggling to get above 32 degrees. We're looking forward to a heavy wet spring snowstorm this evening.

    You GA guys must like to sweat a lot. [​IMG] I live 1000 miles north of you and mine's been on for a month now. I start it in March and turn it off in November.

    I wish you guys could send some of that heat our way here in California. We are going through a cold "spring." I turned on the heater last night. And I fear we're going to have another summerless year in SoCal. I hate that. I like the weather hot and desert-dry.

    The NYC report: Turned on the a/c last Monday as the high temp. set an April record. Ran it through Fri. evening. Last night (Sat.), the heat came on automatically -- it's building-wide and triggered by an outside temperature sensor. Today it's still on.

    "AC"? I don't think I have that at home, but there's an "AC" button on my car's dashboard. I'll have to push it one of these days, and find out what it does. [​IMG]

    That's funny Patrick! My wife and I live a couple of miles from you and we both decided last night that we couldn't take it any more (even w/ the windows open) so we turned on the AC for the first time.

    I was out on my porch last night until about 3 AM looking at Saturn, Jupiter, and the Moon through my telescope. I'd start sweating if I didn't come inside to the cool A/C every 15 minutes.

    Well, I'm envious of you guys. I'll take the heat, but you can keep the high humidity!
