I am undoubtedly writing this on my PC. I am in my automobile with my family, and every one of us is going north because our whole neighborhood is being evacuated from an oncoming hurricane. It’s kind of a scary time. It’s also an entirely boring time. I am stuck in the middle of a traffic jam on the northbound lanes of the highway. The people I am with and I have been here for many hours, and I’m told it may take another 10 or twelve hours before the traffic thins out. So I have plenty of time to write! What is making all of this even worse, however, is the fact my car’s HVAC plan is broken. And where every one of us lives, it gets up to the lower nineties all year, with humidity levels going over a hundred, so having an A/C is not a luxury, it’s a necessity of living life. Sitting here in this traffic, surrounded by a tepid engine, with the pavement heating up beneath us, the automobile is starting to become a gas furnace, but what choice do we have? The people I was with and I rolled down the windows for natural ventilation, but all that does is let in the exhaust fumes from semi trucks, there is no cooling sensation to it at all. If it gets any hotter I’m going to have to try and get one of the other cars to let my youngsters sit with them for a while just to cool off with some A/C. It’s bad enough every one of us have this storm coming, but with no A/C it is pure torture!
