Calvin and I have been working outside in the heat all day. Nice to come in to the AC in the house for the day. I keep it at a cool 80 degrees in the house. I love this heat.

Back From Lancaster where I reffed soccer games today from 12:30 to 5pm. 80 humid up the wazoo no breeze
Exhausted. Shower beer and I predict an early night.

How's the A/C in the SW during these hot days? I really want a SW for some reason but I'm thinking summer would be bad.

Helped a friend move a safe this afternoon. Yes, neither of us are very bright. Now sitting in the A/C watching that last of the "Die Hard" series. I can't believe it is to hot to BBQ.

I was on a bulldozer and back hoe all day. It has been mid to high 80's in North Mississippi. When the wind was blowing it was fine. When the wind stopped, I looked like I jumped in the swimming pool with my clothes on. The humidity is through the roof!

We were in the 90's... Went up on the roof and put an attic vent fan in. Not a smart day for it but it brought the attic temp down 30 degrees within an hour.

my A/C blows colder in the D90 than the Disco II, the problem is the A/C unit condenses water around the vents. Otherwise no problem.

This one has enough CFM's to take care of the second floor also. We just need to close the attic vents and open the second floor windows.
