Swamp coolers are very effective when it's really dry outside. We had them in our home years ago.

My first thought was of your SIL. Hoping you ALL stay safe.

Another perfect summer day. Our string of them should be coming to a screeching halt this weekend, when we will hit the upper 80s. Still seems like a spring day compared to what some of you are having to deal with. I guess I'll not complain about 80s, huh?

Thank you, CG. So far my SIL hasn't been called out to the fires, but his 'brothers' in nearby stations have.
=====================
Here's to a safe summer for all in this crazy heat wave! I'm staying inside as much as possible - don't even want to see my next electric bill.

I would love to hear of a major snow fall right now in the western part of the country. I am not asking for a major rainfall. That can be more devastating than snow.

It is humid by us. As in "wring your shirt out" humid - not advised for ladies. Also "hug Willis Carrier" humid. That depends on your marital status, I suppose. Also, your weirdness level. After all, the man died in 1950.

If our weather would make its mind up I could answer this question!

Today it has been, in order of performance, dull but damp > blue sky and sunshine > throwing it down with rain > more sunshine > and it's just gone a black as Nick's hat and looking like a thunder storm is pending. (Yes, I was right about the last possibility - just had a huge clap of thunder!)

And it's only 2.50pm!

I'm expecting it to (literally) rain cats and dogs followed by a plague of locusts and a snowstorm before tea time!

Downright chilly. It is in the low to mid 60's. Still waiting for a week of summer.
