commented on Ballard Business Owners: Get Seattle’s Homeless Away from Us!
I live in Ballard and have no problem with this. All the NIMBYs and yuppies can go back to Bellevue if they don't want to live in a city.
We already have dozens of homeless people sleeping in vans and old RVs on almost every street. Giving people a place to throw away their trash or grab a shower or access Social Services is not going to put the Sloop out of business. Frankly, I'd rather see them go out of business than block basic human services to people that need it.
People need to realize they don't live in a bubble.

commented on How to Keep Your Insufferably Hot House Cool
It's all about the cross breeze. Pull or push air from the cooler side of your abode (the north side, or whichever side hasn't had sun lately) to the hotter side with a couple fans at each end, one facing in and one facing out.
A dehumidifier will only heat up your space. It's not humid enough here to make a noticeable difference relative to the amount of heat the thing will put off.
Close your blinds when the sun is shining on your windows.
