Getting ready for the heat. Today I went to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore - south side – to buy window screens.
Lesson Learned: Security bars on windows make it hard to put in screens. With the bars, putting screens on the outside of the window is impossible. Putting screens on the inside is awkward because every time you want to open or close a window there is a screen in the way, which is a pain-in-the-ruckuss.
Living close to the mountain means I get nice cool night breezes late into the season. However, if I keep my window open without screens then my house becomes infested with weird desert insects. Security for comfort is a unpleasant choice.
