Get an Air Conditioner in Maine

Last week, I was in New York City, and it was hot. That's to be expected. But in Maine, it's supposed to be cool. Maine is Vacationland: the place to visit and escape the heat. That's what the Maine Tourism Board claims. However, for the last few weeks, the temperature in Portland has been in the 80s and 90s with very high humidity. It's hotter in Portland than New York City!

A couple of years ago, we had a heat wave that lasted a month. It was like living in Sacramento, California without an air conditioner. If you ask most Mainers, they will say Maine never gets hot enough to warrant an air conditioner. Why waste money on something you'll never use. Then last year, there was another heat wave. Well, enough was enough, and we decided to get an air conditioner, even though it wasn't the Maine thing to do.
