All of my fans are working into overdrive, as I'm sure most in the PNW are. But since we use most of these fans in different places around the house, I've come to know my favorite, and it's proof you can't judge quality by size.

The silver Lakewood brand fan on the left has many miles on it. It's been my travel fan for years. (Yep, I'm one of those that has a fan while I sleep winter, spring, summer, and fall.)  It's not a bad little fan, but it's just one speed and sometimes I need a little more air or white noise.

The larger blue Massey fan was a desk fan at work when I was in Alaska. Sounds funny, right? But Alaska doesn't need air conditioning much, and on summer days, our office building got a little warm.

The black fan on the right is a cheapy made by Chillout and by that I mean it's a simple, one speed and comes with a USB power cord for your computer. It's a few years old, but was in a closet so it's just getting some use now!

Then we come to what I consider the best small fan you can get. It's made by Opolar, is battery operated, rechargeable, and 3 speeds! This little thing throws some air! It's more powerful than the other fans shown. It can be hand-held or stands upright with a little stand. It blows all night on low, then I plug it in for the next time.
