The perfect home

It was 90 degrees with 85 percent humidity, and we were camped out on a beach in Florida. My husband had just been transferred with the Air Force to Florida’s panhandle, so our family decided to save some money and pitch our big three-room tent in a campground on Santa Rosa Sound while we waited for base housing. We were close to the water so we could swim whenever we wanted to, and we were just across the highway from the Air Force Base. It was convenience, adventure, and fun, all in one package!

Well, the fun lasted for about four days. The temperature kept climbing, as did the humidity. Afternoon showers would produce even more humidity. We thought we’d just go jump in the water and cool off. Wrong—the water was bathtub warm, and the children and I were left to withstand unbearable heat while my husband went to work on base in an air-conditioned room. Every day the children and I would stand under a tree with perspiration dripping off us. The wait for housing at the base was three months long and I knew we could not be left out in the heat any longer.
