it was over 90 today, and we're looking at almost a week of similar temps coming up soon
using my A/C is really expensive since my regular electric bill has jumped up nearly $40/mo without us really using any more power than usual
if anyone could spare a few bucks to help me offset the power bill so we, especially my kid, don't die of heatstroke, i'd appreciate it a lot ❤️
and if you'd rather commission me, that's fine too
for full disclosure's sake:
i don't like using my air conditioner, and avoid doing so for as long as i possibly can. today is maybe the second time this month, possibly the first, i've turned it on at all, and only because i don't want to risk my kid's health from excessive heat and/or dehydration
we live on the third floor and it gets pretty humid here so while high 80s/low 90s might not seem that bad comparably, it can be pretty oppressive even with fans
@DMX literally the only reason I'm still alive is because the humidity is uncharacteristically low... In the 30%s, which is basically the kind of summer heat I grew up in in norcal. If the air gets damp, I'm done for
