AC riots! - Qualified Perceptions
AC riots!
The first floor N42 residents finally got cranky today, as we began the fourth day of Annoyingly Too Hot In The Building. So the building has been locked and people told they don't have to stay in the first floor. My own section was probably only about 80, due to being downwind of the stairway to the second floor, but there were other areas that were hovering around 90 or 100. And I was never falling for the sneaky trick of "we feed you lunch, so now you don't leave the building for an air conditioned restaurant", though "we feed you popsicles" was nice.

While I'm glad that we escaped, I wasn't able to be as angry about it as some of the other people were; probably in part due to the aforementioned relatively cooler spot, and also because I kept thinking that as unpleasant as it was, it must be worse to be up on the roof in the sun trying to fix the darned thing.

Wow, that sucks. 100! I'd be considering calling in sick...

A few weeks ago, when it first got really hot around here, two of the four units at my office building failed. It was almost unbearable.
