Now that we have a new air conditioner, the hot, humid August weather that we have is a lot less stressful. I always used to worry about whether the AC was going to survive the heat or if we would come home and discover that it was broken in the middle of a heat wave. We can tolerate the heat as well as anyone. But its still not fun. So, it’s good to come home to a nice cool house after being outside on the river all day. And, we can use the flash for our photo sessions and don’t have to worry about too much or too little light from the windows confusing the exposure metering of our camera.
