And then it was spring… no, wait, summer.

I love living in NC. And I love my house. There’s just one teeny, tiny design flaw with it – the airflow.

My house has 15 windows in the back, and 5 windows in the front. And because of how the house is situated on the property, all 15 of the back windows get the bulk of the sun on any given day. This is GREAT in the winter, and REALLY, REALLY warm in the spring/summer. Also, in order for air to flow through the house, both front and back windows need to be open. And no matter what time of year, the air generally flows from the front of the house to the back of the house.

You start to see the problem, I’m sure.

So, we’ve had our two weeks of spring, and now that it’s getting into the mid-80F range every day, it’s time to turn on the AC – that or I can plan on sweating like a fiend until about 3am, when enough air has moved through the house to cool it back down.

And it’s only April.

Something tells me it’s gonna be a hot summer this year.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

  1. Sounds like you need some deciduous trees in front.

  2. At least you have an HVAC system. I should not complain. We have a box A/C in the computer room, a new car with lovely ice-cold new A/C, and (best of all) two quotes from HVAC companies. I am trying to convince Jeff that waiting till May might be a bit much.

    The weather forecast this morning says 91 today and 94 tomorrow! I hope this doesn’t mean that come July and August we can expect 100+ degrees every day!
