The people I was with and I tried using the portable air conditioning outside

Just a few weeks into the pandemic and lockdown, I started the project of giving my backyard a makeover.

  • I dug a fire pit in the middle of the yard, and surrounded it with gravel to make a cool laying area.

I tuned up all the landscaping, added new plants, and trimmed back the overgrown hedges for the first time in years. I wasn’t satisfied, though, so I added a 10 by 15 movie screen to the side of the house, so that the two of us could watch movies by the fire! This was a large hit for the kids, and reMained so until the weather turned, and the need for air conditioner returned. There is something about the sound of a crackling fire that can add ambience to a movie, but alas, the sound of an air conditioning isn’t the same. First of all, cooling dissipates so quickly outside that you can barely even think it when the two of us use the portable air conditioning. Second of all, the thing is absurdly loud, nothing at all savor a fire or a space heater. Why are space furnaces so whisper quiet and these cooling units so blasted loud? The people I was with and I tried using the AC once or twice, but it just disrupted the movie and wasn’t as much fun, but until the cold weather returned, the two of us just watched movies inside, in the comfort of the central air conditioning and waited until the two of us could get back to the fire. The portable air conditioning worked great, it just was never intended to be used in the open air savor that.
