Indoor smoking was banned in Minnesota a few years back. The result was this wonderful proliferation of patios at nearly every eating and drinking establishment. This really should have been done years ago because Minnesotans like to take advantage of any and every opportunity to be outside when the weather is warm. We've gone straight to summer and I really shouldn't be complaining about it so today is all about finding our window fans and replacing the ceiling fan in our bedroom. Any sort of weather can be tolerable if you find ways to ease the discomfort. While our house is rather small, we have a few excellent ceiling fans and hopefully we can stick to that rather than locking ourselves into an a/c house.
