The BRD was here yesterday to hang two sun blinds on our patio for us. We drafted her because she has similar blinds on her own patio that she hung herself. She did a great job and the blinds should help keep the heat down in the house as the living room windows face southwest. Hopefully it will help keep the electric bill down some, too.
Trust me, these 100 degree days can heat up the house, even with air conditioning.
And it's only May!
