I'm sure glad I kept the RV

It's too darned hot for me! 98 degrees with a heat index of 103 at 7:00 P.M. is too much. Up to now, I've been running the air conditioner in the house all day until around 10 P.M. when it finally cools off enough to sleep with just a fan. However, after getting the electric bill yesterday I decided to do something different. The RV is parked in the back yard with nothing to do, feeling a little lonely. So, I ran an extension cord into the house, turned on the air conditioning in the RV, and have been very comfortable reading Our World in Transition by Diarmuid O'Murchu and watching "Dreamgirls." This is a much smaller area to cool than the whole house so hopefully it will make for a lower electric bill. I opened all the windows in the house to take advantage of any fresh, cooler air overnight while I sleep out here tonight. Very cozy, very nice.

I'm not sure if "The Cookie Lady" will make cookies for the volunteer training in Turley tomorrow morning. She might just slice up the banana bread she made earlier this morning when it was a lot cooler. Hmm--a new name--Banana Bread Lady? Not sure about that.

Suggest you check to see that the plug connection in the house isn't getting hot. My suspicion is that it's only a 15 amp outlet and it will take over 20 amps to run the RV AC.

How long is your extension cord? The length will factor in the equation as well.
