DIY Don't

It's HOT in TEXAS ! ! !
Last  week all afternoon temps were 100+, with a GINORMOUS wind!

What Happens this week?  You guessed it, the AC died,

 temps are shown below, and not a stinkin' breeze to be found!

So here is my DIY solution . . .

1. Beg, borrow, or steal (o.k. don't really steal) 1 portable AC
2. Grab some cardboard, duct tape, (2) garden spray nozzles and large leaf-sized trash bag.
3. Assemble step 1 and 2 in the most desirable, energy efficient manner (or simply one that will hold the AC so it doesn't fall "outta the winder" in the middle of the night, scaring the "bagezus" outta ya)!

See Complete Setup: Tutorial self-explanatory

And because when you have a ginormous hole in your bedroom wall, you just know it is going to lightning, hail and rain cats-n-dogs!

Make sure to "Water-proof" the assembly by utilizing the aforesaid mentioned black trash bag and duct tape.

  1. Before we got central heat and air in our old house, we used window units. One died last summer, one month before we were scheduled to get our new system. What luck! Hope you are able to stay cool in this heat!
