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 standing 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 film screen to the side of the house, so that we could watch films by the fire! This was a huge hit for the kids, and reMained so until the weather turned, and the need for cooling system returned. There is something about the sound of a crackling fire that can add ambience to a film, but alas, the sound of an cooling system system isn’t the same. First of all, cooling dissipates so abruptly outside that you can barely even guess it when we use the portable cooling system system. Second of all, the thing is absurdly loud, nothing at all appreciate a fire or a space heater. Why are space gas heating systems so whisper quiet and these cooling units so blasted loud? Both of us tried using the AC once or twice, but it just disrupted the film and wasn’t as much fun, then until the frosty weather returned, we just watched films inside, in the comfort of the central cooling system and waited until we could get back to the fire. The portable cooling system system worked great, it just was never intended to be used in the open air appreciate that.
