As I was talking about getting a new AC unit for my studio, I have another story about a portable AC unit. I've had a Grand Jeep Cherokee for 15 years - yes we keep all our cars for that long. My Jeep finally threw in the towel right before the heat wave hit California. My AC went out (the fans stopped working) then the power windows stop working. Ever drive in a car during a heat wave with no AC and couldn't roll down the windows? I've been looking for a new car for some time now. During my CJ retreat week, I rode around in Patty's Lexus RX300 during our marathon scrapbooking store shopping. After grilling Patty about her car, I decided that was the car I was going to get. Come to find out the second hottest car to buy is (that means it's on back ordered with a long waiting list) - yes you guessed it - the Lexus RX. Remember I'm still driving around in a car with no AC during a heat wave. What's a girl to do? I brought Patty's Lexus! So now I think I have all my AC issues under control.
