What will you do without Air Conditioning?

What if our area is without power for a few days because of Hurricane Irene?

How hot are we going to get?

Are you prepared to sleep with all the windows open?  Do you have screens for all your windows?  I don't know about your house, but my rooms are configured in such a way that there are NO cross breezes in my home.  Oh, how I wish for one of those homes built before air conditioning, when they knew how to put windows on all four sides of the house!

Here is one helpful tip:

If you have any mylar emergency blankets (they cost about $1.50, and look like a big sheet of foil), you can tape them up on the inside over your windows and that will reflect a lot of the sun out of your house.  Your rooms will be a lot cooler.
