Summer has finally arrived in Minnesota. It's been very warm the last several days. It's been nice swimming weather. I break a sweat just sitting in the sun watching my kids play t-ball.
Well, you know what happens when the weather changes and the sun gets hot (or it gets below freezing) and people are out traveling and it's always inevitable that you'll start seeing cars along the side of the road. Flat tires, over heating, etc. are kinds of things that happen when the weather changes.
Whenever we've looked at cars the most important thing I look for is air conditioning. If the car doesn't have it (which pretty much all cars now days do) I won't buy it.
Today, while I was at a stop light, the most important feature of my van went out. Poof! Gone. No fan, no whirr, no hair blowing in the breeze, no comfort, no cool, no movement. Just dead air. It didn't take long for the heat to take over the van again, smothering yucky heat. I can't breathe well in heat. At night in the winter when I'm freezing and I put my head under the blankets I always have to have my mouth and nose poking out. I can't stand to breathe hot air. It gives me a headache. My air conditioning going out gives me a headache too.
