Normally, we try to get to a cooler area during our summer vacation.
However, the pandemic issue sort of threw a wrench in our plans the last couple of summers.
Last summer, there was no travel at all as we stayed very close to our air conditioning in our home. Both my wife and I were working at home in the HVAC at that point. The idea of going on our summer trip just didn’t appeal to either of us given all the restriction. I didn’t really want to vacation and only be able to eat take out. This year, we are vaccinated against the virus and feel a bit more free. However, we’re still being careful so our summer trip was fun but not all that far from home. Still, it was so nice to get out of our air conditioning and see something new. Since we knew that we were going to be in the same region, air conditioning where we were staying took on added relevance. But we needn’t have worried. The mid tier hotel we chose to stay in had the big wall HVAC units. Those are the ones that are the most reliable and really pack some HVAC cooling even when it’s broiling in this region. And trust me, it can get down right scorching in the middle of summer around here. However, we had a great time on our trip. We saw new stuff, had some great laughs and were super cool in our hotel room. I love going to sleep with that big air conditioner doing its thing all night. I even pulled up the blanket on one occasion.
