Remember when we use to have these...
They rotated back and forth. And if you
were lucky they were quiet. If it was old,
then you had a click noise from the blades
hitting the protection screen.
How did we survive those days? I know
it was awful lot when it was summer, as
my bedroom was upstairs near the attic.
You could barely stand a sheet on you.
Yet we thought we had it made if we had
the fan up in our room.... because that wasn't
the case most of the time. I think mom and dad
had two.. a big one and a small one.
I say this as I sit next to our window AC. With
another one kicking in around 7 p.m. in the bedroom,
leaving our room 62 by the time we go to bed.
