How are you sensing climate change?

I visited my home town in central Wisconsin this summer during an excessive heat advisory. While visiting my 90-year-old grandmother, she commented on the THUMP THUMP THUMP noise her air conditioner was making. We called her landlord but we were told it was after hours and an air conditioner going out was not considered an emergency, even during the excessive heat warning in a 90-year-old woman’s apartment. My grandmother is lucky to leave near family who can take her in if necessary. A huge storm that blew out the power in the assisted living facility where my other grandmother lives put the health of dozens of senior citizens at similar risk.
