Which level of hell?
We always have a few miserably hot days during august. Day's where the temperature exceeds 100 degrees fahrenheit. We as a community are ill adapted to such temperatures preferring the cooler wetter seasons, and so extreme heat warnings plaster the news and people clog every body of water and air-conditioned building in town. Imagine my displeasure upon hearing the news that the air-conditioning in our campus building is broken. The building in which even when in perfect order the air-conditioning only serves to cool a meager half the labs within. My office boils even on the cooler of summer afternoons, and the heat often interferes so severely with my brian function I have to find other places to do my work. Perhaps today I will set up a desk in the Greenhouse. That cooling unit is functioning perfectly well and keeping the greenhouse at least 10 degrees cooler than my office. Such a brilliant use of resources. At least my plants will be comfortable.
