Sweaty Glass Crack Days



How hot is it? Hot enough to crack window panes!

A loud noise like a rifle shot startled Domestic Partner and me in the cool air conditioned calmness of Suburban Paradise today. We have sliding glass doors that used to open to the backyard before the family room was added on. After the initial nerve jolting crack, the safety glass on one side proceeded to snap, crackle, and pop for about thirty minutes. It reminded me of that nerve wracking scene in Jurassic Park 2, with Julianne Moore (but with two black pugs instead of the T-rexes).

The family room has no insulation, so it is stifling hot in the summer. The glass must have succumbed to the contrast of that room's trapped-in heat and the coolness of the air conditioned dining room.

And how are you all beating the heat?

Let's just say that I'll be paying up the wazoo for all the air conditioning I've been using!
