Careful What You Wish For

Yesterday evening, the wind started blowing. A lot. Once the sun set, I opened all of the windows because I really wanted to blow as much hot air out of the house as possible, and I got my wish. I also got a bunch of stuff blown off of a shelf near one of the windows. It was positively chilly overnight, but that's good because I sleep better that way.

As long as we stay out of the direct sun, it's not too bad yet (today's high was about 35°C), but it will be worse for the rest of the week. I'm glad my job keeps me indoors and close to the swamp cooler.
