My girlfriend and I woke up on Saturday morning and the air conditioner wasn’t blowing any cold air.
We planned to spend the day in bed watching movies with the kids.
It was supposed to be close to 100 degrees that day and we weren’t going to leave the house at all. When we woke up and found the air conditioner broken, we had to come up with a different plan for the day. The maintenance office couldn’t get to the repair until after lunch. My girlfriend and I woke up the kids and we packed a bag with a change of clothes. I told the apartment community manager that way would be gone all day. She promised to text me when the air conditioner was repaired. We left Tampa and headed for Rainbow Springs. Since it was going to be a hot and humid day, the Tampa Bay area spring sounded like a great idea. We left Tampa Bay shortly after 8 AM. Traffic was already heavy, even for a Saturday morning. We were driving away from the city, so traffic started to dissipate rather quickly. We arrived at the spring around 10 a.m. and the park was already at capacity. We drove 90 minutes for the perfect day at the springs and the forest ranger wanted us to drive all the way back to Tampa without ever putting our feet in the water. That wasn’t part of my plan, so I took the kids to a different and more secluded spring. It wasn’t as large as the state park, but it was just as cold and refreshing.
