Definitely. I hate having rousing Joey because he gets angry, but thatís life.

Our youngest has been a bit thrown off by it. Our oldest isnít even phased, I think his brain is wired to an atomic clock as he gets up at 6:30... time jumps ahead he gets up at 6:30. Time falls back he gets up at 6:30.

So I am sure that I got some extra points for being the token volunteer dad at the girls school but while I was at my mentor lunch yesterday the principal and assistant principal came in and did the clap thing to get all the kids quiet. She then announces that we have our Volunteer of the Year here so we should clap for them. I'm looking around to see who she is talking about and she says it's me. Not something I expected or even thought about but it is pretty neat to be recognized. I am sure I am going to get some side eyes from the ladies at our volunteer breakfast because I know there are a few that do WAY more than I do. So I can now check Elementary School Volunteer of the Year off my to do list.

Packers WR Trevor Davis found out the hard way that the TSA does not have a sense of humor.

So I'm the guy who as soon as the temp in the house gets above 72 degrees I turn the air conditioning on. And it rarely gets switched off until the snow flies. However, there are a large number of people here in the northern part of America's Dairyland who take great pride in how far into the summer they can get without turning on the A/C. If you can go the whole summer without using the A/C you win the respect and adulation of throngs of like minded people.
With the hot weather moving in this weekend I heard two such conversations yesterday while waiting to pick up my daughter from school.

A good friend of mine, believing that A/C is so expensive to run, employs this trick. Believing that he's not going to cool a house that he is not in all day while he's at work he waits until he gets home to turn it on - only on unbearably hot days of course. Runs the A/C full boar when he gets home. The thing doesn't cycle off for an entire 6 hours. Once he gets it to a "Comfortable sleeping temperature" he turns it off and opens all the windows.

So good luck this weekend A/C Warriors!

I hear yah.
We been here a couple summers now.
The hottest day has been 86 in this very location on my deck.
It doesn't get hot. It's breezy, low humidity.
Snows like a muthereffer though. Not all the time, mostly big dumps.
I reckon that's why they call them mountains.
We don't use the ac. Very comfortable in the low 80s

For me the A/C comes on more in a response to the humidity than the heat. Turned it on the other day as it was 80 inside the house and the humidity read 75%. I keep the A/C set around 75 so it doesnít come on too often, but it does a great job keeping the house from getting muggy.

Preach it. The main reason we run the AC. Humidity sucks

Plus !! During the day when nobody but myself are home I set the A/C at 76* or so. I do lower it in the evening so all sleep comfortably.
