As you are an actual survivor of living in Miami without AC, it's not much wonder you can live in the desert with it in the 90's. I lived in Houston for a few years (not a kid, but almost) and had AC for sure. Even with AC, I wanted out of that town as quick as I could get out. There is something to be said for "dry heat." At least you can take a shower, and notice afterwards that you've dried off.

I absolutely lived in a house with no air conditioning in Miami, in fact it was in South Miami, closer to Homestead than Miami. In fact, when I got out of the Air Force at 22, the house I bought on the G.I. Bill, all it had was a window shaker in one of the bedrooms, and that just barely made one room livable. And I lived for a couple of years in that house with an MG midget sports car with no air conditioning.

I have never heard the term "window shaker." When I was a kid in central Texas, there were little window units with a fan and were water cooled, you know, with a whatever that was pad with water trickling over it, and then later there were refrigerated units, that used lots more electricity and were better at taking care of the heat when it was humid weather. Is that what a "window shaker" is?

Sorry about the colloquialism Judith. A window shaker was a common southern term for the cheap air conditioners that you would sort of mount in one window of your house to cool one room. But they tended to vibrate their mounting screws loose hence the term window shaker. If you were rich you could afford one in every bedroom.
