Do you live in Hell? That makes 90 seem downright tolerable.

Are you out here with us, Frank? Sounds like the Phoenix weather forecast...

Oh, and don't forget that we'll have monsoon moisture starting this weekend, so my swamp cooler just became completely worthless.

I thought I was the only one without AC...

As they say "Its Vegas Baby".....so stinkin' hot! Glad I've got ceiling fans throughout and a brand new AC unit put on earlier this year. Land sakes, I've even got 3 ceiling fans on my patio and intend to put a misting system out there so working out is bearable. Ken, how the hell do you live there without AC?

Got it, my first house here had only evap cooler and the population here was relatively low at the time so the cooler worked pretty good except for August. I"m thinking of adding one to this place as well since much of the time humidity is still low enough for it to work ok. The best installation is with hard ducting through the attic and side mount the unit right into the gable end of the house, kinda expensive.

I think working out in Chico at 106 without air should be continued. Hot weather work outs do toughen one up a bit!

Yea...we have a few folks in their 70's...they are tough but I'd rather not have anyone stroke out during a session!
