Half the city goes nuclear when Bu$h is mentioned and this seems to incite temperatures in an upward direction. High 80's....pretty comfortable.

Arizona is perfect swamp cooler country. They get no respect but are 10 times more energy efficient. They can work superbly if properly set up.

Rule of thumb for swamp coolers: Temp and Relative Humidity added together should not exceed 110; after that, their efficacy drops dramatically. Air conditioners of the heat pump variety (majority of residential installations in AZ since they double as heaters in winter) have trouble bringing temperatures down more than 30 degrees from outside temp; ergo 115 outside the best inside is about 85. Many commercial installations put heat pump compressors inside areas that are swamp cooled giving a much more efficient operation. The average residence is screwed in this heat or when the rains come in August or September.

Right now, the temperature is a cool 54! I had to have a light jacket to sit on the deck earlier this morning. The high will be in the low 80s....

Mid 90s during the day high to mid 70s over night. We'll get the 100s soon enough. Plus remember that my relative humidity is usually 70% or higher.

How many days/year exceed 110 degrees? Sounds like Death Valley.

Western NC would be paradise with 1/2 as many people. Chase off a 1/2 of dem fella's and I'm in. Maybe. 'Cept Alaska is the only state left that still offers freedom. Price to be paid for being off of Rockefe$$er/globalists police state radar for sure.
