I thought I would answer some questions!
Izzy, why is it so hot at your house?
It's always hotter here than at the airport (where the "official" temperature is recorded). Why? Well, our elevation is about 5,646 feet, almost 300 feet higher than the airport. We are closer to the sun, of course!
But why has it been running 10°-15° hotter than usual?
I don't know but I think Caroline's screaming at Ivan might have something to do with it.
Izzy, what's with the dead spot cleaners?
It seems this is a problem for lots of folks. We are on our second (and final) Bissell Spotlifter 2x. We find they last about four to five years. The first one the battery went stone cold dead. This one just decided it did not want to charge without melting its wires, never a good thing. Because it has a nickel cadmium battery in it and because my mom worries about weird stuff, it's now resting in a place where the least amount of damage can be done should it decide to spontaneously combust before she can safely dispose of it.
Well, that's it for me right now. My question is When is dinner?
