Bloggers, it's "hotter than the hinges of Hades," said Barbie2be! Let's remember to keep our collective cools and that there are always people who are worse off.

I agree with Barbie2be. But in California, it's a dry heat.

Lucky you! Here, it's as humid as the brig!

"Hot" takes on another meaning, too! She blogs from a place I wish to visit!

Since attending Outward Bound, the southwest seemed a good place to live.

i have always loved the desert southwest. i am SO not a humidity girl. Austin almost killed me it was so humid.

Ohio is pretty, though quite humid in summer. Perhaps I was meant to live in the southwest!

Hello, Yoga,
A hot arid climate is nice. Evaporative coolers or "swamp coolers" use much less energy than AC, and work just as well as AC, in a dry climate.

The desert is full ot beautiful life.

Thanks for reading, Jimbo! I'll look into that evaporative cooling.

Blogger Jim said...

Wherever there is a dry heat, like Arizona, evap coolers a wonderful. They cool the air down and raise the humidity in the house. I grew up in Arizona, and we had both an air conditioner and evap cooler.

Even in Arizona, there were days that were too humid for the evap cooler to make a difference.

Me? I spent as much time as I could in the pool!

Jim, I'll look into it! Thanks!
