Isaiah 58: 11

Isaiah 58:11

The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.

When It Gets Hot

clock and thermometer in our car
June is here and the temperature in Doha is warming up.  It's not unusual to jump in our vehicle and see the outside temperature reading 50 degrees Celsius .  Fortunately, our Toyota Prado has a Super Cool Air Conditioning unit so we leave it set to "Cold".

Our house has central air conditioning and a thermostat in each room. It is controlled by a 3500 lb air conditioner (A/C) unit on the roof . We set our rooms at 19 C.
The roof of every house also has a building which contains two electric hot water tanks, two pressure pumps, and a cold water tank.  Because this building is on the roof where the sun is hottest, the room heats up. There is a small A/C unit to keep the room cool in the summer. But even still, it is sometimes difficult to get cold water from the taps in the house. Sometimes a shower in the morning can be hotter than you want! And doing a load of laundry in cold water means filling the washing machine the night before to let it cool.
