A local neighborhood hired myself and others to give out snow cones at their summer time parade this year.
- They have a little community center where they do events from time to time, and sometimes they have movie afternoons or dances, & the youngsters in the neighborhood love it there.
This week, my oldest child & I took our snow cone unit & supplies up to the community center because they paid us to hand out 200 snow cones at their summer time kick-off parade; Of course, today happened to be a real scorcher outside. The weather has been heating up for a few days, but I’m pretty sure that today, the outside temperature was around ninety degrees, then when you’re working inside a little community center & the temperature outside is hot, you get pretty sweaty; Combine that with the fact that the A/C in the building wasn’t working properly & you get a annoyed time! Since the two of us were making snow cones, the two of us were using lots of ice, and since there was no a/c, the ice melted at an spine-chilling rate! As a matter of fact, separate from A/C, the ice melted so fast that the two of us ran out much faster than normal. Not because the two of us made too numerous snow cones, but because the ice turned into puddles on the floor! I explained what was happening to the coordinator of the event & she said that the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C device had stopped working the day before but they had not had time to get the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C suppliers out to repair the device yet. At least she took pity on us & sent someone out to get extra ice!
