I exchanged the Magic Bullet for a new one on Wednesday. I also picked up an appliance specifically designed for making ice treats like snow cones or frozen beverages.
Two large glasses of shaved ice later, I feel a little chilly. Which is good, because the air conditioner is still not working right. I got zero sleep last night because the freaking temperature in this house was 81-82, regardless of what the A/C was set on. I don't forsee the same probkem happening tonight; if I need to cool off and the house is hot, another glass of snow-cone ice should resolve the issue.
