Speaking of the Heat........
According to the news, the first air-conditioning used to cool a home was in 1901.
A 5 hp fan was used to pump cool air from Luray Caverns into a small home nearby.
Imagine the the visitors they must've had as word got out!
Luray Caverns is located near Luray between I81 and the Skyline Parkway, which is the northern connector to the Blue Ridge Parkway.
---wonder how much radon is in those caverns? With the heat gridlock we've been in, I don't think anyone paying to get in would really care!
