Back to the 50's
This summer has been brutal with heat. The water temperature is up to 85+ degrees. Even when the air temperature drops to the low 80's at night Reboot never gets really cool. In the middle of the day even with the a/c running full blast it is still unpleasant inside. But this is not a unique problem to Reboot. I have discovered that even the public spaces - restaurants, the hotel lobby, and local stores don't have enough tons of a/c to keep up.
I decided that if I am going to be semi-uncomfortable I might as well be entertained. When Trevor was visiting we saw the new Harry Potter and Transformers. Yesterday I went to see Captain America. Rapidly moving forward to 2011 I can describe it with one word taught to me by my sons: Meh. And the theater was warm. Even so it was better than sweating all day on Reboot.
As a perspective. It is 7:30 AM EDT. The outside temperature is 80. The water temperature is 85.1. The inside of Reboot is 90. This is true even though the a/c has been running all night. Ugh.
